Dennis J. Plews Kicks off Kickstarter Campaign to Build StarDrive Propulsion Prototype

This project improves the efficiency of cars, boats, and aircrafts using a technology that many remember from the popular television series, Star Trek. The notion of impulse drive and its viability in the real world has long been a point of contention among Trekkies. With his concept of StarDrive Propulsion technology, Dennis J. Plews is about to turn this fictional technology into reality.


Sarasota, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/16/2015 --StarDrive Propulsion, while reversing global warming, can be used to run cars, boats, and aircrafts better than ever before. Science fiction and space travel enthusiasts around the world will be excited that StarDrive Propulsion makes extended space flight a tangible reality. The team, led by Dennis J. Plews, has already done the research, verified the science, and the US Patent proves it. Now, all that is needed to take StarDrive Propulsion to the next level is funding.

The core technology of StarDrive Propulsion can be applied successfully to propelling all types of motor vehicles and many other down-to-earth applications. It has the potential to transform the transportation market around the world by reducing the fuel consumption needed to power the vehicles. In addition, the carbon footprint of all these vehicles will be reduced significantly. Cars and trucks will be able to operate without transmissions, drive shafts and power train parts. Boats will no longer need propellers. Aircraft will fly at higher altitudes without propellers or externally mounted jet engines.

The next challenge for Dennis J. Plews and his team is to raise the capital they need to move to the full-size prototype stage. $250,000 is needed to complete all of the CAD (Computer Aided Design) work to create the final design. Another $100,000 is needed to manufacture the necessary parts, including the capture disks that hold the thrust masses, the housing made of high strength composite by Fiber Forge, and the metal acceleration ramps.

This project will only be funded if at least $350,000 is pledged by Saturday, February 28, 2015. To find out more about StarDrive Propulsion, and to view the tests that prove the science, please visit
