that is traveling or can travel faster than light
It must be aluminum alloy and faster than light by three times at least.
The journeying squadron—every ship wrapped in the utter unapproachability of faster-than-light travel—was oblivious to all that had occurred. Its separate ships came out of overdrive some forty million miles from the solitary planet Ades, lonelily circling its remote small sun.
They'll know the principles of the star drive in a few more generations, and invent a faster-than-light engine almost at once!
The Viking was not, of course, a faster-than-light ship.
FASTER-THAN-LIGHT WEAPON PROMISED.
He described the development of transportation from the coach and four of baroque days to the faster-than-light spacecraft of the present.
Whether or not a Tellus-type planet ordinarily becomes unfit to support human life before its sun goes nova is not surely known. Nor does it matter very much; for, long before either event occurs, the human race involved has developed a faster-than-light drive and has at its disposal dozens or hundreds of Earth-like planets upon which even subhuman life has not yet developed.
Every suggestion that sprang to my mind was open to the charge that it wasn’t a new concept but an elaboration of an old one, except the faster-than-light drive. And we'd dealt with that.
The engines…run the Enterprise and drive it at faster-than-light speeds.
If they start from Earth, you can’t turn on any faster-than-light drive inside the orbit of Saturn, or you'll crash the asteroids.
There wasn’t even a theoretical basis for faster-than-light travel. We never did invent hyperdrive, if you'll recall. We'd never have discovered it by accident, either, because we'd never have thought to do our experiments out beyond the singularity.
You can conceive of faster-than-light travel, and yet you can’t imagine destroying the Lusitania Fleet?
I speak of our attempts, of which you have probably heard rumors, to develop a faster-than-light spaceship that will be capable of conducting human colonists to suitable planets outside the solar system.
Why can’t we have dinosaurs on Venus and canal-side civilizations on Mars and faster than light galleons[?]
