Hey everyone, This is my first post and I'm not sure if what I have to ask has been addressed before, but I thought I would give it a try anyway. I've been playing around in my head with the notion of pseudo faster-than light travel. I'm currently working on a science fiction project and was trying to figure out how time dilation would apply to a vessel that is able to arrive at a destination faster than light can travel, but without the vessel itself actually traveling faster than the speed of light. The concept is that if it were possible to stretch the space-time curvature opposite of the vessel's motion and compress the space-time curvature in the direction of the vessel's motion that the vessel could actually warp space around it so that it could actually arrive at a destination faster than light that is traveling in non-warped space. Almost like a wormhole, but a wormhole that actually grows/travels through space while pulling the vessel with it. So here's my question. If this type of travel were possible what time dilation effects might occur? It seems that a distant observer to this event would still experience time dilation, but would this actually result in any time travel effect? That is, if the vessel with the ability to jump ahead of light returned to the planet from which it left would it actually travel back in time? I'm sorry if I'm missing an obvious point to this discussion or concept. I know that this is only for science fiction but I would still like the concept to be somewhat plausible, or at least non-contradictory. Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
