Which hypothetical space drive is best?

I’ve come across several concepts of space propulsion drives and I wanted to know which one you’d say is


•most efficient


Let’s assume they are all possible to create and I am NOT looking for faster than light propulsion.

1.) Dipole drive https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2018/05/r ... drive.html

2.) Quantized Inertia drive https://www.tsijournals.com/articles/pr ... nertia.pdf

3.) Thermonuclear Micro-bomb propulsion drive https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2013/03/t ... n-for.html

4.) Bias drive

5.) Diametric drive

6.) Disjunction drive

7.) Pitch drive

Which one should I research OR is a good ‘old fashioned ion drive, good enough?
