This is an interesting topic. I would highly recommend checking out the series, Sci Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible hosted by Dr. Michio Kaku (theoretical physicist).
He looks at a lot of the topics discussed here ("warp" drive / FTL travel, invisibility, anti-matter etc.)
I have more queries on how they handle the time dilation issues more than anything.
On a side note, what we also have to remember is that our understanding of physics is not complete. We don't have a unified theory and much of what happens in the universe is still a mystery. As we learn and discover more, new laws are written and existing laws amended. This could open up a lot of possibilities in the future or perhaps none at all.
