    I notice that space ships were hovering, I thought and really to get thousands of tons to levitate must use up a lot of energy and fuel ect..
    so I came up with this idea, maybe the ship drops a device to the surface of the planet, and that device can generate a magnetic field and maneuver the field in such a way that the ship in the air can levitate without consuming any fuel, energy ect..
    perhaps these sci-fi city's have these magnetic devices placed all around them for ships to dock.

    With bravery and recognition that we are harbingers of our destiny and with a paragon of virtue.

    Then again, maybe it's just photoshopped. Moving to pseudoscience.

    They use Anti-Gravity - well Gravity Control Systems.

    We do - in 2137. We got it from our ( fairly ) new Allies - the Rhynwyrr.

    Nope, you're all wrong, these aliens breath in hydrogen and out helium, - this causes a little heat and thus the ship remains elevated by hot gas, just like most other posts!
