TechnologyI have seen the future, and it is being reported by the Scottish:
The theoretical engine works by creating an intense magnetic field that, according to ideas first developed by the late scientist Burkhard Heim in the 1950s, would produce a gravitational field and result in thrust for a spacecraft.

Also, if a large enough magnetic field was created, the craft would slip into a different dimension, where the speed of light is faster, allowing incredible speeds to be reached. Switching off the magnetic field would result in the engine reappearing in our current dimension.
All be darned if that don't sound mighty familiar (minus the whole "scanning for parallel universes part" -- but the part about "slipping into another dimension", well, that's just Star Trek talk...).
