Notes (2019)[edit]

For those wishing a slightly less "Pseudo-Science" Dean Drive concept, an alternative might be to combine the Dean Converter concept in some way with a conjectural future Grand Unified Nuclear Force Theory lying behind the operation of the MT:DGP version of the Thruster Plate. Perhaps with advanced understanding of nuclear forces and multidimensional space-time/hyperspaces, it is possible to inter-convert Angular Momentum and Linear Momentum on the Subatomic/High-Energy Physics level via a deeper understanding of the unification of the nuclear forces with the rest of N-Dimensional Spacetime topology.

Norman Dean in the 1960s-1970s just accidentally reproduced the effect in certain configurations of his device without really having the science to understand the true principals behind the effect; hence, nobody in his day was able to successfully or consistently replicate the effect.
