    I hate to play "Who's a bigger geek" (win or lose)... but I feel compelled to point out that Dilithium Crystals were only used in Warp Drives not Impulse Engines. Also as this link points out, two lithium atoms in a compound may be called Dilithium but unless we have stumbled into the same physical properties - they aren't remotely the same thing.
