Reading into it more, I've learned that there are different kinds of fuel you'd use for different instances. Things like escaping a gravity well would need something more than an ion drive.

imo anything that modifies spacetime is automatically the best choice. power the bias drive with a hawking's knot and you can travel anywhere you'd like.
As you can see, I'm a huge nerd who'd rather write about how we can become a Type V civilization instead of study for my final exams (gotta fix that).
But to put an end to this topic, might I say that the one and only greatest future achievement of humankind is when it finally becomes posthumankind.
