Sure there are plenty of other stars in our galaxy and even if we found a new home in some other solar system in the MilkyWay, the clock is still ticking. Andromeda is set to smash into the MilkyWay and being in the middle of a galactic collision is no place to be. So we would need to travel well beyond even where Andromeda is today. We're talking millions of light years. There is always a clock ticking in space, somewhere from some terrible event that will happen.
What if other life forms have been in existence for millions of years and have developed technology to literally teleport and cover millions of light years of distance in no time at all?
