Hello Geoff, know how you feel - that was always my reaction to that "time travel" statement about FTL. But then I'm not in love with Relativity, and it's Relativity's 'speed limit' dictum that allows scientists to say that. Personally I think there's too many loose ends around Relativity - f'rinstance it says (iirc) that "gravity" travels at light speed; but empirical evidence (including NASA's) says it's approximately instantaneous - see Tom Van Flandern's masterly analysis and conclusions www.metaresearch.org/cosmology/speed_of_gravity.asp www.metaresearch.org/cosmology/gravity/speed_limit.asp if so, that Relativity dictum would've meant that gravity itself was "time travelling"!
