    Say goodbye time dilation, as well as all the junk between point A and B.

    G-port drive: Fly your ship at a constant, 1G acceleration in space. Activate your G-port drive. For every hour you accelerate at 1G, you drive will be calculating a light year's distance to teleport you when you stop accelerating. So at 1G for a little over 4 hours, you all reach Alpha Centauri.

    Pros: It allows you to skip all the normal issues with traveling large distances. And you can travel away quickly if you ever wanted to, but if you wanted to get ANYWHERE, you would have have to sustain your course without changing.

    It also means you can pick and choose your battles. Your not gonna get in a fight unless you want to. Since enemy ships will have a mess of time tracking you when you start teleporting light minutes and seconds away constantly.

    if your pattern is teleporting a distance of light minutes it would be really easy that they would simpley wait where your going to appear.

    Depends on the drive. If they have the same drive, it will be a never-ending chase.

    If they have alcubierre warp drive, they are flying blind anyway, and couldn't even detect the ship until they dropped out of warp.

    Assuming they had some fantasy equivalent (tachyon sensors, which are FTL), then they could definitely do what you said.
