Sci-fi writer looking for help Hello everyone. I am working on some ideas for a new science fiction comic... more of a space opera really. I'm not a cosmologist or even a physicist, but I actually can understand (or at least grasp) about half of what I've read on the subject. I am hoping that I can bounce some questions off these forums to get me on the right track for how to approach interstellar travel and ship mechanics, and maybe get some ideas... like when a Star Trek script just says [...TECH...] for dialogue. Obviously I don't want to get -too- mechanical. I'm just a storyteller at heart. Basically I want to know enough so that I don't sound like an idiot. Would this general "lounge" forum be the best place, or would such questions be more appropriate in the Cosmology or Astrophysics forums... assuming they are okay to post at all.
