Two thousand years ago, a writer envisioned a trip to the Moon...
And people thought the same thing when a writer envisioned that same trip 100 years ago.

I think that space travel to the nearest stars may be a series of leaps, like what the Polynesians did when exploring the Pacific.
That works for planets just fine... but not stars. That's a category error you're making: the polynesians never managed to explore the moon, for example.
