Light years are fake news, believe me. I am pretty sure, the alien prez can warp time & space by just putting his signature under a decree using the biggest multi-dimensional fountain pen of all time (bigger than that screwdriver thing of that tramp living in a blue box). It will be the greatest distortion of time & space & reality ever. Everyone will envy them, believe me. And the earthlings will pay for it. It will be fantastic. It will be super FTL! And you know what? He already made it, as this authentic document testifies.
