OK. So I watched an episode of Star Trek TOS and was thinking about traveling at faster than the speed of light. Why does one need a deflector shield at that speed? After all doesn’t Einstein’s theory of relativity basically say that at such speeds the concept of matter and energy merge?

So, at that rate of travel are you really matter or are you energy?

Comments welcome.
