But Her Ladyship's characters use wormholes for FTL.

quoting myself
===
Now, on the principle that Her Ladyship is always right even when she
thinks she's wrong, wormholes and wormhole transits have not, so far, been
shown to be in violation of the laws of physics.

See Kip Thorne  _Black Holes and Time Warps_

Now anti-gravity and artificial gravity (anti-grav and lift tubes in BiA)
may have to be a violation, does anyone know ?
