Space Travel

In my future fiction novels my characters are starting to colonize space. I have to think about how they get there and how they travel long distances. 
There have been so many stories with so many varieties of space travel It's going to be difficult to find a way to develop an engine that doesn't look like I'm copying someone else. 
I have a few ideas bouncing around in my head, but I would like to hear your thoughts.

How do you think Earthlings are going to expand into the Universe?

Is this real life?

Story idea:
Guy lives a high adventure life (Super Hero, Secret Agent or such).
He dreams of having a normal life, so much so he imagines having a wife and child, going to a regular, boring nine to five job.
He desires this so much he actually lives out his imaginary life in his mind and his super hero duties interfere with his imaginings causing extreme frustration and depression.

Create the story.
