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.
One thing that I will just point out is that the mathematics that we understand and apply can be entirely different than how another civilization applies or understands mathematics. We are always learning. Perhaps the speed of light is just a equation that we currently understand and that we can't comprehend any other type of travel or speed at this time.

Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth. There is no spoon.
