Calcium helps bone development so I see two ways to go. One would be too much calcium and bones growing out of control. The other would be too little and people losing their bone structure because of it.

Many years ago, I borrowed a large hardback from the library called "The Science in Science Fiction" by Peter Nicholls. It went into a lot of detail about common SF tropes and examined how scientifically plausible they were. It might still be in print, though will probably be rather difficult to get hold of. Failing that, there are a good number of "encyclopaedia of SF" books. Some of these just describe the popular movies, TV shows and books, but the better ones also have some more thoughtful examinations of the common elements of the genre. On Amazon, try a search for "the science in science fiction nicholls". That'll find the book I mentioned, plus some other books that Mr Nicholls has written or co-written. There are also several books with titles like "How to write science fiction". Orson Scott Card has a popular one. I wouldn't worry about thinking up unique names for technologies. "Faster-than-light drive" is a description, not a name. Many writers refer to "FTL drives". "Jump drive", "hyperdrive" and "hyperspace drive" are also common. "Warp drive" will make people think of Star Trek, but the term isn't exclusive to that show. A cunning plan is to name some of your gadgets after the guy who invented them, or first proposed them. One of my stories has spaceships propelled by an Alcubierre drive (look it up - he's a real person). EDIT: And yes, agilebrit is right - SF (good SF, anyway) is about people, and how these shiny gadgets and robots and spaceships and aliens affect their lives and their relationships with each other.

Habitable Planets for Man: http://www.rand.org/pubs/commercial_book... Remember that fiction is about PEOPLE, not "concepts." Only the geekiest of geeks care about how your characters get from one place to another. I have only the vaguest idea how my car works, and yet I use cars in fiction all the time. Don't get so hung up on your transportation; figure out who your characters are and what problems they have. And everyone has to start somewhere. Good grief, the arrogance of some people. Just because it doesn't come "easy" AT THIS POINT doesn't mean that writing isn't for you. Good God. I've been writing for years, and I still tear my hair out over this stuff. My latest thing is giving me absolute fits, but I'll by-golly thump anyone who tells me I shouldn't write because it's not "easy" for me. And, yeah, it's not like writers are riffing on each other all the time, or brainstorming together about knotty plot problems, or asking their friends for prompts... Oh, wait. My Writing Buddy never, ever says "It would be really cool if you did THIS," and then I don't EVER take that notion and run it right into the Wall of Wrong. Nope. Not ever. *adjusts halo* Anyone who thinks that "real writers" never ask for help is smoking something I wish they'd share with the rest of the class. I've got a whole list of writing prompts--some of them out of my own head, and some suggested by other people. Nine times out of ten, I have no idea which is which.
