Scotty would love this!

It seems that Star Trek's warp drive may not be so fantastic an idea after all, if Dr. Richard Obousy is to be believed. He posits that if we ever manage to harness what he calls 'dark energy', it may become a reality.

Based on his ideas, this is what believes a future 'warpship' may look like.

Weird-looking thing, isn't it?
