It is possible to use a black hole for that purpose but it is impossible with our current technology here is my theory if we achieve the technology to do so : To achieve the fantastic energies required for translight travel a huge power source is required. Such a power source can be built by tapping the energy of a black hole. To trap a black hole and use it a way must be found of containing the black hole inside a field of some sort. This can be done as follows. Any black hole is completely defined by three quantities: its mass, its charge, its angular momentum. The mass is simple, and for our purposes the bigger the better! The black hole can be charged since the electrostatic field equations are not subject to relativistic corrections etc. Electromagnetic fields all travel at light speed anyway! Next is the angular momentum. Now computer simulations have shown that a rapidly spinning black hole turns into a torus or doughnut. Then a large metal rod can be passed through the middle. At the center of the torus (the Eye of Harmony), we are outside of the event horizon and gravitational fields are very low so the rod will not be torn apart. The black hole must then be charged by firing millions of tonnes of charged particles at it. Then an opposite charge must be maintained on the rod and the black hole is captured around the metal rod. Two huge fields must build around the black hold to stop it from sliding up and down the metal rod. This is doable. Now how do we use it ? To gain energy you use the rotational vortex method of Roger Penrose, and by using reusable matter to get the energy you can tap off as much as you like. With such a power source set up, one can build a dimensional collapse which enables you to shrink the apparent size of the blackhole machine. This will also mean that the mass of the black hole will fall for external observers. Another way of solving the mass problem is to use Higgs Boson particles to negate mass, since the Higgs Boson is generally believed to be the origin of mass. Then the device can become part of a normal spaceship. One can also change the relative time advancement rate of the blackhole region of space and so gain vast amounts of energy from the Hawking radiation that Black holes give off. This way the Black Hole loses mass and so you can turn the entire mass of the Black Hole into energy. Also the Black Hole then maintains it's own containment field. The important point is that one can set up the energies needed to causes the quantum fluctuations in general relativity and so tunnel across the translight barrier. The universe suddenly becomes yours for the taking. A NASA space shuttle fitted with a BH device becomes more powerful than Darth Vadar's Death Star!
