well there's also quantum entanglement and teleportation, which, if you believe einstein, is what is referred to as spooky action at a distance. and it's instantaneous no matter how far apart the teleportation devices are from each other, due to entangled quantum pairs or something like that.

If physicists and other scientists hypothesize the speed of light is actually the fastest speed that can only be obtained in the naturally-known universe; how did aliens supposedly reach our planet? They must have been traveling for quite a long time! But then again, time is relative!

Quantum effects are much faster than c. In fact, there is nothing in physics that prevents a rod of the length of many light years when being pushed on one end to instantly move on the other.

The constant speed of light "c" is only in relation to light in a vacuum, and observed from the perspective of a rotating sphere.
Outside those restraints Einstein's constant c does not apply. Meaning there is no requirement for the speed of light to be constant, or limited in it's speed.
Einstein made no assertions as to the speed of light observed from a non rotating point in space outside the influence of a planet. That perspective is not even considered.
