The Alcubierre drive math checks out. What we lack are metallurgy and energy production technology (at present).
So, still pretty implausible. Like orcs.
No, just not "do-able"...yet. "not yet achievable" =/= "implausable" or "fantasy" or any other such word.
The same could be argued for making "orcs" with genetic engineering. We just lack the specific genetic understanding and technological means to realize that.
