This is not a Star Trek or science fiction site. We are seriously trying to develop plausable concepts for starships we think could be built and flown in the mid 21st century, using the likely technologies of the day. We have and are discusing why we might send such a ship. What it might be assigned to do. What constraints seem likely. What flight types seem possible, acceptable, or advisable. How it could get to a nearby starsystem. And what technical developments would be nessisary to build and launch such a mission.
