Outer space is huge, so there’s plenty of room to hang a lampshade.

Faster-than-light travel is a fact in the Bright Goose universe, and theoretically possible in ours. But it sure as hell won’t look as cool as this, mainly because from the perspective of someone outside the Alcubierre bubble, the ship would just disappear.

In fact, a lot of space travel wouldn’t look all that cool even on board, because sub-light speed would barely look like the ship’s moving at all, at least without a frame of reference like other objects to zoom past. And space is notoriously empty. Even at faster-than-light speeds, we’d only see… this.

Basically, if you’re going on a long space voyage, hang some nice paintings on the wall.
