"The Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine became a reality in April 2291 due entirely to vision, perseverance, and dedication of these two pioneers in quantum engineering and applied theoretical physics. They have opened a path to the stars for all of us."
— Memorial plaque on Quito Space Tether

Doctor Tobias Fleming Shaw,[1] ScD, QeD, FRS, along with Doctor Wallace Fujikawa, was the co-creator of the Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine in 2291, a device that allowed humanity to reach locations beyond the Sol system through manipulation of slipstream space.[2]

He held the title "Doctor of Science" and was renowned for his work in the field of quantum electrodynamics. He is supposedly the father and namesake of Shaw multivariate calculus, a form of astrogation input used by starship crews to calculate parameters for slipspace jumps.[3]

He was likely from the United Kingdom as he held the title of Fellow of the Royal Society, a distinction awarded to British and Irish scientists.[4]
