To be fair, science fiction has 'rubber science' conventions -- things we know are impossible, but they're fun anyway. Faster than light travel or time travel for anything bigger than a photon are not going to happen in our universe, but they do provide more interesting settings for writers. I guess the key word for Jim is 'plausible,' because I can think of only three of his SF stories which could work in our physical universe. The others all have some impossible element (time travel, FTL spaceships, vampires).
