    "FTL" by Adam Stern

    A lone astronaut testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft travels farther than he imagined possible.

    Ethan Kane, a NASA Astronaut and decorated pilot, has recently retired from active duty to spend more time with his wife and young son. As he tries to adjust to a quieter life on the ground, he’s approached to fly one last mission...testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft. While the world watches, Kane takes The Longshot on its maiden voyage.

    Sir, we have a strict speed limit of c in this galaxy. You were clocked at 1.25 within your own system...It's your first offense though, so these officers will take you home.Your vehicle, however, is being impounded as unsafe.

    U.S. Government couldn't keep it quiet if Earth's survival depended on it. And locking him up because he's a possible threat isn't really prudent, considering the obvious, immense technological disparity between us and the Beings who delivered him.
