Default Re: [Spaceships] Anti-Lithium for Drives Does this work?

It's pretty much nonsense. Antilithium has the same energy content per unit mass as antiprotons, and would have the same performance. There are two potential benefits, but both are probably already incorporated in regular TL improvements:
  • It's possible the annihilation products would be easier to deal with. I wouldn't bet on this, though.
  • Anti-lithium is probably easier to store than anti-hydrogen.
