i personally like the event horizons methed of travel. "fold the space to you so you dont go anywhere" engine.
Alcubierre Drive

Something we're now coming to realize may be more feasible than previously thought.

not to mention all the little side tek- padds (ipad anyone?). communicators (bluetooth/cell phones) real working tricorders etc etc.

granted that most of the "science" terms and stuff they use is just filler, but i do like to think we'll get there someday.

Technology, yes. There's no doubt that the iPad/communicator/tricorder have helped shaped modern technology.

I'm talking more about the actual 'science' behind stuff. 'ZOMG REVERSE THE POLARITY OF THE MAGNETON FIELD BY INITIATING A THETA RADIATION BURST, AND THEN USE AN INVERSE TACHYON PULSE TO MODULATE THE PHOTON NUTATION!'
