Whilst conducting some research for Cyber Nightmares #2, I got distracted with some research for a new sci-fi anthology I am working on and I stumbled across some great info on current Faster Than Light (FTL) theories and R&D acivities to turn them in to reality.
The part that really got my attention is that it turns out the Alcubierre drive can not only propel a ship FTL but it “eats” holes through any matter in its path.
The theory has been so well received that NASA is funding a program to make a prototype. This lead me to the posibility of using the alcubierre drive as a weapons system in Cyber Nightmares #4.
What do you think – an interesting choice of protagonest tooling or a step to far?
