So is this within the Solar System? Going outside requires orders of magnitude more energy to travel in a reasonable amount of time.never leave home without it. And I only need realistic tech for the portion of the story that I'm at.
It's definitely time for the black box approach, then. The characters don't have to understand it, in which case you shouldn't have to describe it. It just works.Pretty much, my beginning is cliche: the explorers go to another planet (in this case Mars) and find alien technology there. At that point I hope to create new propulsion methods.
