There was no scientific basis in 100 AD, let alone a sound one. We've really come a long way since tehn you know. The theory of relativity will be superseded one day, no doubt, but the concept won't. Every new theory has to agree numerically with all previous ones since it has to agree with all the experiments and observations that validated that one. There'll never be a meaningful theory that doesn't incorporate relativity as the observations indicate it's a property of our universe. And thus the issue with gravitational spaceships isn't going to go away.
