I'd have to say that from what you've written so far I don't have the
slightest trust that you can intelligently answer questions about
relativity.  Since relativity doesn't have faster-than-light effects
you've already given away that you don't really understand relativity at 

Lee, I'd suggest asking Timothy Van der Linden or me, as we seem to
understand special relativity approximately the way physicists do.
