"As you might know," he began, "May 17th Star Trek Into Darkness premieres in motion picture theaters around the country. But what you didn't know is that one week before that, Fora.TV and I will be premiering a video TV special online debuting the world's first functioning proto-technology for warp drive... "
The announcement was just the latest bold move in what has become an aggressive campaign establishing Marshall's technological and intellectual abilities across a variety of fields. It began with his proving that Stephen Hawking was wrong about his Chronology Protection Conjecture with the first ever physical experiment to prove Hawking wrong about something, then followed by proving that elementary school children could see a mistake in Hawking's "Mad Scientist Paradox" on the Discovery Channel, followed again by beating Stephen Hawking in his bet over the Higgs Boson particle in July. August found Marshall emerging from his successful appearance at the Mars Society Conference in Pasadena to announce the successful creation of the Verdrehung Fan™ proto-time machine to challenge Ronald Mallett's claim to having the worlds first time machine. Marshall has since been battering Mallett's position as the world's leader in time travel science with public appearances demonstrating the Verdrehung Fan™ in science classes, on live radio braodcasts and lectures. December 20th Marshall put Mallett in a distant 2nd place by announcing that he had upgraded the power for the device and it had reached the 1st stage requirement, set by Mallett, to be a time machine, leaving only one stage to go. Meanwhile, it was revealed that Mallett won't have a demonstrable device for another nine years. Marshall followed that by announcing the creation of a special report for select members of Congress on the true geometries of time travel so that the expected announcement that a time machine had truly been invented would not have the officials on Capital Hill worried about time travel paradoxes, which Marshall's report proves are impossible - the first document of its kind to do so. Marshall is now preparing a nationwide tour promoting both his time machine device and his warp drive technology, making him the most advanced concept inventor on Earth.
The announcement of the long awaited unveiling event of the STDTS™ means that the world will see what others have before, in various lecture events or in the company of reporters getting a story - that the technology to accomplish warp drive exists and Marshall Barnes has it. As a 2011 article published on Fanpop.com stated in its headline - "Warp Drive Inventor Proves He's Man To Be Reckoned With" http://www.fanpop.com/
"I know that there are people that don't believe it," Marshall admitted later, "but they don't realize that I've had this since 2000. I've shown it to people and reporters, so there's no question that this is real. The problem was how to make money with it, keep control over it and develop it - all things that inventors have to deal with, but the stakes in this case are much higher".
He added that people expect to see something like in the movies because they don't know anything about the physics and the physics that they've heard about isn't entirely accurate. At the same time, some physicists, that have seen the demonstrations, have been unnerved because what they see violates every known cause - unless the STDTS field really does act on space the way as a warp drive. That's an idea that they can't get used to. Marshall doesn't care.
"People are talking about the NASA announcement about warp drive as if NASA is going to have a working system next year. First of all, Sonny White, the physicist that's working on it, is confirming what I published in a paper in 2011 - that the energy requirements for warp drive could be smaller and that field pulsing or modulating would be a key factor http://www.prlog.org/
"The bottom line is that I don't need NASA to develop this and I wouldn't take it to them in the first place. I've figured out how to monetize this technology while I develop it further. The potentials are incredible and I already know what they are and how to achieve them. I'm in the private space enterprise business, and I have consultants and contacts to do it."
