A Tachyon is a hypothetical particle that travels faster than the speed of light. Nothing is supposed to travel faster than light or the concept of linear time would become meaningless. Tachyons are therefore a popular work-around in science fiction shows to facilitate the otherwise impossible. They rank with Heisenberg compensators as among the most useful MacGuffins for writers.
