A more fundamental question would seem to be: *Why* would you want to go to the stars?

Survival, resources, curiousity maybe, but there aren't many reasons to go through all that trouble if you don't have to. Once you start to talk about the kind of powers we discuss here, stars are little more than balls of hydrogen gas wastefully burning themselves up. Why not dismantle them for fuel and live in mobile habitats in free space?
