Of course the main constraints are your audience, Star Trek fans, who
usually like talking about frontiers of physics and even mind/body
problem issues etc., but also your own background (I don't know what
it is) prompts the audience to adjust their level of attention based
on whether they think you are talking about stuff that you might know
something about. Another idea is to key off of a source which the
audience is familiar with. For instance, Michio Kaku wrote The
Physics of Star Trek a while ago, and another book called Parallel
Worlds, and recently came out with a book called The Physics of the
Impossible which you could use as a launching platform and talk about
how the multiverse realm might help to think about some of the
impossibilities that Kaku writes about, such as teleportation.
