Though interestingly this particular justification for free energy actually fails to give you some of the flashier applications. It's useless for space flight (and hence the ever dreaded relativistic impactors), or for life support in places like space, underwater or tunnelling to the center of the earth. As an engine drawing on a resource with a finite density it doesn't even lend itself well to bombs or applications that require enormous energy densities.

If you want cosmic power that doesn't have consequences that should quickly twist the world into something utterly unrecognizable, that's a nice start.
