I am designing a world where humans have achieved FTL by means of the Alcubierre warp drive and are colonizing the stars. Originally I had communication pegged as being done with quantum entanglement and the like, but I recently heard of the no-communication theorem that, seemingly, prevents this from coming to fruition. Now, from a narrative perspective it is not strictly speaking necessary that communication is fairly instant, but it's a ton more convenient. Therefore I'd to find a way for it to be so using existing theories or reasonable speculation.
- Is there a hole in the no-communication theorem that can be exploited to permit it anyway?
- Is there other, speculated methods of instantaneous communication?
Otherwise I am relying on communication being done with warp drives, that is, every settled planet will have a comm station in orbit that every day/hour/minute sends out a comm drone through warp space with the most recent and updated info to other settled planets, likely in a branching fashion so that A sends to B and then B sends to B1-B9 and B1 sends to B1,1-B1,9 and so on. Now, warp isn't instant, it takes about a week or two to travel across inhabited space (approximately 400 ly in radius), so that creates a lot of delay
- Is there a more efficient solution when you use warp as a basis for interstellar communication?
I don't want to have to rely on a lot of "magic" technology, but if something is reasonable speculated/theorized to be possible within the realm of physics (albeit past the capabilities of humans to reproduce at all anno 2015), I'm interested.
