No.  This was a very short BASIC program that was, essentially, a
smart-assed joke.

You "travelled" to another star at some fixed speed, could have been
1c, could have  been much slower.  The gag is that without warp
drive, are you going to sit there, watching your computer tick down
the entire distance in real time?  I wanted to find it to see if the code
even _does_ have an "arrival" routine (vs just a nearly-never-
ending countdown timer scaled in years).
