fail...

starships do not travel at that speed. the warp field around the ship does. Essentially the ship is not moving. Essentiall meaning that the ship is in a buble...that moves through space time at faster then light. The crew is fine. And the ship itself is protected within the buble by inertial dampeners, to keep it smooth...


refer to this for a better explaination.

As an science fiction world creator that is good to know.
Have to come up with something smart that works around.

I have some theories about how warp speed is possible.

The Chuck Norris theory.

When Chuck Norris shave or get an haircut his hair is used for a wild variety of things.
One of the things is being glued at the front of each and every starship.

One piece of Chuck Norris hair force every atom in front of the ship to move away, since Chuck Norris hair could with ease destroy an asteroid by touching it.

The same goes for radiation and any kind of energy.
The fear of being close to something that have belonged to Chuck Norris force almost anything into hiding.

That is also the reason why you cant collide with ships or making intimate hull contact since the matter of the ship just slip away in fear of Chuck Norris hair.

In short, Chuck Norris hair screw with the laws of physics, science and common sense by forming an impenetrable force field going from the front to the back of the ship.


Its speculated that Captain James Tiberius Kirk consumed a bit of Chuck Norris hair and the result was pure awesomeness.

Yes, except the ship doesn't accelerate to light-speed, it accelerates to less than light-speed and folds the universe around itself.

And somehow I can't imagine this not being one of the reasons for navigational deflectors.

More like that proved the guy making the "argument" has no knowlege of Star Trek whatsoever, and that those considerations had already been accounted for with fictional technologies seperate from the Warp Drive. (Deflector Dish anyone?)

Without even having to discuss the faster than light speed via a warp story line. For sub-light, which on impulse does go almost the speed of light, one only needs to point to the big radar like antenna on the orginal Enterprise. That's the deflector dish. You know to deflect things like those pesky hyrdogen atoms out of the way of the ship to avoid just such an issue. Geeze, that's 1960's Trek lore, that has always been included on the Enterprise regardless of letter.

The author of the article was more interested in making a point about high speed in space more than commenting on Trek. On Trek he displayed more ignorance than knowledge.

they also said similar things about "flying machines" how many aircraft are flying around in the skies at this very moment?

Just because current technology cant comprehend it doesnt mean in 200 years it wont be possible.

Just the fact that we're discussing this makes the guy's point valid. Not the stuff about hydrogen. The part where he attracts attention by using a scifi franchise to illustrate how his research should ruin it.
Had he just said "Hey guys hydrogen in space hurts" the piece would never have found its way to the general public.
He's probably right though
