Need help constructing a technobabble sentence

I am doing a presentation next month, and wanted to use Trek technobabble as an example for the point I'm making.

The idea is to create a sentence that to non-scientists, sounds fairly scientific. But to scientists, it's utter bull-oney.

So maybe some reversing of a polarity, and a singularity mention, perhaps.

Also, some deconstruction of that sentence would be nice too (i.e. why reversing the polarity is "wrong").

Thanks!
