It's the science that powers the [[FasterThanLightTravel FTL]] drive on the starship so the characters can get somewhere, it's the magic that hatches the EggMacGuffin so the protagonist can save an endangered species, it's the strange things unknown to science or magic that do basically anything [[RuleOfDrama except those limits and dangers required by the plot]]. The reader does not know how Phlebotinum would work and the creators hope nobody cares.
