no warp drive idea that could possibly bend space and allow us to travel over light speed

No, because the Alcubierre drive concept has been around for ages.

emotions and robots should not go together. srsly, how many movies do we have to make before scientists stop trying to kill us.

I am very sceptical about hologram one.
ways to fake it have been around for a very long time, like Tupac reflective glass that's been around since 19th century.
real hologram would have to be projected in voxels, for example, a standard 24 bits per pixel, 1024×768 resolution, flat/2D display requires about 135 MB/s to be sent to the display hardware to sustain 60 frames per second, whereas a 24 bits per voxel, 1024×768×1024 (1024 "pixel layers" in the Z axis) volumetric display would need to send about three orders of magnitude more (135 GB/s) to the display hardware to sustain 60 volumes per second.
In short, it will have to be either tiny or have pathetic resolution and still not work very well, because bandwidth demands are huge.
