engines) are developed and incorporated into existing spacecraft
designs. Eventually Cochrane and his team of engineers relocate to
the Alpha Centauri colonies (a 4-year CDP-powered voyage) to continue
to pioneer warp physics. The S.S. "Bonaventure" (NCC-S1100) galactic

The fourth-dimensional (second-level) nature of dilithium crystals is
discovered. On Earth, a mad dilithium rush occurs when it is
discovered that dilithium crystals have a dozen different
three-dimensional physical configurations which can make them resemble
common crystals. Many Earth museums become incredibly well-funded
overnight simply by tearing apart their geology exhibits to find


dilithium crystals which had been misidentified as quartz for
generations. It will be some time until the crystals are used to
their full potential in warp drives [GN 7].

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
