Exclamation New Design -- Alcubierre Demonstrator

There are several designs similar to this one, and you'll recognize the heritage as being the "NX prototypes" from ST:E...

James Pierson came up with an early version, and Andrew Scott has several which fall into this category.

This one is set up for the A10-3T. No other engine is recommended.

BTW, everyone really needs to Google the name "Alcubierre". He's a scientist that has theorized 'space warping' is more than just a possibility, but something fully acceptable within Einstein's General and Special Theories of Relativity. I'm browsing through his paper, trying to keep my poor brain from exploding from the many equations. It's matrix math at the extremes, really needing the power of a supercomputer just to crunch the numbers.
