I think these efforts are doomed to failure given the physics we currently know. Not to mention he fails to address the massive theoretical problems
once the space warp exceeds the speed of light (at least globally), such as causal disconnection, Hawking radiation, and also satisfy the restrictions
imposed by quantum field theory (the larger the negative energy density, the shorter the time it is allowed to exist).
Still, I remain optimistic. Perhaps future physics and discoveries will allow for the construction of one of these space warps. This is equivalent to
attempting to build a laser after Maxwell discovered the laws of classical electrodynamics. It just wouldn't fly with most scientists since light was
believed to be exclusively a wave. The laser was as much a fantasy back then as warp drives are today. However, that is not to say that warp drives
