If you submit to the theory of relativity and the conclusion that the ultimate speed limit is the speed of light then keep in mine that the equations deal with propulsion based on action reaction.

A new theoretical propulsion system could brake the light barrier by using field propulsion which does not operate by the newtonian action reaction.

Believe it or not Physics does know of at least one phenomenon that violates the third law of motion.

You may not be able to brake the speed of light barrier but you might be able to get around it.

Look up the "Alcubierre warp theory".

His theory has a similar problem but zero point theory offers a possible solution for the energy demand.
