This volume relates to both the science of novel wormhole configurations in the stated and further implied context of using wormholes as a reactionary exhaust to propel primarily relativistic rocket spacecraft and/or for connection to relativistic rocket spacecraft as a source of extremely large fuel supplies. In cases where the wormholes would have negative or imaginary mass-energy values, the wormholes may, in a theoretical sense, be indistinguishable from tachyon exhaust or exhaust streams that travel faster than light in both the background and ship reference frames. Assuming that wormhole exhaust streams ever prove practicable for propulsion and as a fuel source, the size and complexity of the exhausted and/or ship-connected wormholes is somewhat arbitrary commensurate with the range of sizes that would be useful for a given level of relativistic rocket technologies, including size and invariant mass range of craft and the like. Even should macroscopic wormholes prove impracticable to construct, microscopic and ultramicroscopic wormholes may still be of use as reaction masses or other forms of exhaust for spacecraft propulsion.
