Initially, a farmer in Bozeman, Montana thought they found a secret trick to make ultra-dense energy eggs, but they actually stumbled upon a gene sequence that resulted in the chicken laying Dilithium Eggs. With the new energy source, people used these eggs as the power source of new warp drives. These “warp ships” traveled 100 times the speed of light, making interstellar travel simple and easy.
Dilithium Eggs are pink eggs that appear to be made of short rods facing outwards from the empty center.
- Since a dilithium egg produces 1 trillion times more energy than a fusion egg, which produces 1 gigawatt-hour, a dilithium egg produces 1 zettawatt-hour, over 1,000 times more energy than all humanity has ever produced.
- Dilithium is both a fictional element from Star Trek that enables warp drive and the name of a real-life compound.
- The egg being discovered in Bozeman, Montana is also a reference to Star Trek as that is where humans first met the Vulcans.
- In real life, Dilithium is a molecule consisting of two lithium atoms (Li2). It is very important in physics, due to being among the lightest molecules.
