Excerpt from “The Fermi Paradox”, an article by Phil Plait in the Sunday supplement The Weekly Gauntlet.

    I like how they make a leap in logic to aliens being able to have suspended animation tech, but they can’t think outside the box of traditional velocity-based space flight and are therefore limited to comparing travel speeds to the speed of light. It’s been obvious for a very long time that some form of alternate means of traveling the vast distance in space would be needed to be able to move from star to star. Nobody likes a scientist with such a narrow mind.
