Dr. Scott Childress was a member of the Roberts Space Industries team that invented the first Quantum drive in 2075.[1]


During his time in a prestigious engineering school, he wrote a thesis that envisioned exciting work in the field of more affordable engine systems for spacecraft. The work caught the RSI founder Chris Roberts' interest since Roberts always dreamed to make space travel more accessible, Roberts quickly met with the fresh graduate and put together a team to build a more affordable engine for spacecraft.

Although the process was not without its setbacks, in 2075-05-03 RSI unveiled their prototype Quantum Core Engine that makes space travel more affordable.[2]
