The feasibility is not the issue here- I was asking why he would prefer to run away from a UFAI at relativistic speeds rather than supraluminal ones. I could not see any inherent disadvantage is higher speeds, that's all.

It appears to be impossible. Of course, we know our physics is
wrong (the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, for
example) but there's enough evidence for relativity that it is
unlikely that it is *that* wrong.

Much as I hate to say it.
