Here's some rough instructions.

You take a shuttle, and you install a coolent system that encompases the entire outter hull, like a skin. Inside that, is a liquid that emits delta-series radioisotopes. Then, you replace the warp core with a Quantum singularity, (borrow one from the Romulans, with some trade agreement, or something can be hammered out, maybe steal one) and calibrate it so that it emits tetryon emissions. There would be sheilding on the inside of the shuttle to protect the pilots from radiation. But, just in case, you put hyronalin into the air vents to compensate for any stray radiation. To determine where to go in the future, you just calibrate the decay constant in the radioisotope.

To bo back in time, you invert the frequency of the tetryon emissions.

Simple.

Do you need a brownian motion inducer?

if its that simple, i wonder if the trek writers thought of that already

Okay... could work in Star Trek. Unfortunately, almost all of the components from your idea don't translate into reality. Could I suggest a more practical idea that would work in the real world.....

Imagine a line. Only one dimension in size (say only the X coordinate with a value of 5).

Imagine a plane- two dimensions, say X and Y of size on each dimension.

As the Y component of the line is 0, and 0+0=0, as long as the lines are arranged properly you could fit an infinite number of there lines onto the plane.

Scale this up so that it is planes on shapes (2D on 3D, kinda like stacked paper with no thickness) and then scale that up to 3D on 4D. As long as you arranged the 3D objects along the fourth dimension they would take up very little space and you could fit an infinite number into the same space as one.

Scale this up again to a 3D object in the 11th dimension (scientists think that's how many there are so I'll use that). You start to see that the 3D world we see is extremely small in the whole of existance. In fact, you could fit an infinite number in a small space. This means that the probability of anything is 1, i.e. certain. Just find the correct universe. Everything can, cannot, will, will not, has, has not, is and is not happenning. No exceptions. So you can see into the future.

Using the idea that every piece of matter is affected by every other piece and applying some of the more basic laws of physics to the universes you could create a fingerprint for every universe. Using a universe where they had infinite storage capacity and bandwidth you could store this information so that it could be searched. Thus, effectively you have a time machine.

All we have to do is work out which way is the fourth and above dimensions (we can move in three now, why not a fourth!)

Even simpler than your idea. And works in the real world as well as in Star Trek.

I dont see how Time Travel is even possible to the past without createing an Alternate Universe....To the future maybe because it is not altering events that led up to the moment of your creating the Machine....

Who knows whether it is possible or not, but in the end, humans will find some wacked up way to do it.

First we made a spear....then we harnessed the power of the atom......then we made a wacko way to go back in time...very historically sound...LOL

theres a pretty good theory floating around that you can't go to the future since for YOU it hasn't happened yet.  I don't remember who came up with it but it actually made a lot of sense...

That shouldent matter...it would basically appear as though you were just in status, you blink and the world around you changes...But since we dont even have a crude understanding how time travel is possible, we can only theorize...

I still think Time Travel would full under the Alternate Universe thoery Category....

with...

For every choice there is an alternate universe created...But..If the new universe that is created has no significant change they meld back together....personally I think thats pretty dumb a stupid...but i suppose it is possible so i dont ever dismiss it..

well, if we eventually create a "time machine" how come there arent any people from the future walking around today?

Most theories dealing with time travel, show that it impossible to travel further back in time than the creation of the Time machine self, whether the time machine in question is traveling worm hole or some from of Space warping gravity source.

Since no one yet to invent one, we can never have time traveller from the future.
