I think it would be awesome to hear how you know the way the ships work. I can only speculate. I can't say that I know for sure how they travel. No
one can, since no one has ever had the ability to go anywhere close to the speed of light and no one has ever been able to bend space and time, in
reality. At least not that we, the public, know of.
Many, many people thought that the sound barrier was unbreakable and if it was ever broken all types of bad things would happen. It didn't work the
way the scientists speculated.
I am not saying that we could survive going faster than the speed of light, I am also not saying we couldn't.
What the op is asking is what if they were going at, or close to, the speed of light. They didn't ask if it were possible.
Really though, all either one of these ideas are is a theory. I agree with you that, if we were to travel incredible distances it wouldn't be
through the conventional thinking of speed and distance traveled. It would have to be something different. Bend the space to where you want to go
and then jump there or stop time all together and travel where you wanted to go. Either one would be instantaneous to the outside observer.
