I am scientist, hear me roar.

I caught a bit of Stephen Hawking's new TV series on Sunday. They were talking about wormholes and glossing over the energy requirements for the sake of some 80s style graphics. And then, as if that wasn't already bad enough, they had a space ship approach the hole, apparently using no reaction mass or vector maneuvering, making a noise as it flew through space. Gaah! I switched over. I think I lasted 40 seconds.

It's all a bit rubbish, isn't it?

Although I keep reading "wombles" instead of "wormholes" in your post above, which would have made things more interesting.

Wombles on a spaceship. That might just work - www.amazon.co.uk/Wombles-Deep-Space-Other-stories/dp/B00004D33R/ref=pd_sim_v_h__5
