They aren't completely irrelevant then, are they? And that's what we understand about them right now. Imagine what we will know in the far future, you know, when we have spaceships -- in combat -- with adventurer's on board.

We're assuming thermodynamics is true.
And smart folks were assuming all the things that were "science fiction" were impossible, until...every single time...innovations caused paradigm shifts which the average scientist has always thought was impossible. Then suddenly, those things that were impossible were possible. And everyone retroactively knew that, of course. You can cross your arms and say "but this is incontrovertible and you are a fool!" until you are blue in the face. But that doesn't make it so. What it means is that it's possible that TL^ has, and perhaps ultimately will, become TL. And that's all I have said here.
