Neither is Halo's Slipspace; if you want star-spanning space operas you're going to have to fudge science-as-we-know-it somehow. Much as I love Halo, the FTL in it was kinda tacked on and I've always griped that weapons technology shown was too primitive for societies that can travel between stars.

Eh, Slipspace is pretty much the most common form of FTL, just usually called something else (hyperspace, sub ether, subspace, etc.). I agree it's weak, but not any weaker than 90% or more of science fiction.
