I have made my own attempt at the calculation and if I haven't erred it would seem that by the end of one year a craft accelerating from rest at a sustained 1G for one year would finish up traveling at 212,567.5 km/h.
By the end of 4.5 years it would be traveling at 1,000,000 km/h, and adding 1,000,000 km/h each 4.5 years thereafter.
On a trip to our nearest neighboring star system Alpha Centauri, at a distance of 41.5 trillion kilometers, the one way trip would take 11,095 years to reach mid-way and another 11,095 years to decelerate the rest of the way, using the 1G acceleration mode of travel (if my math is on track). Along the way a maximum speed of over 213,000 km/h would have been reached before decelerating.
Don't hold me too tightly to the math. I would welcome someone to check my figures to see if they are somewhere in the ball-park.
In any case, not a scintillating prospect for the successive generations of passengers.
At that speed too, on looking out of the window our Sun behind and Alpha Centauri ahead would look exactly the same to one generation as it did to their parents. Within a human lifespan their craft would appear to be stationary in the void.
Workers in the still infant fields of Space Travel and Space Medicine are rapidly coming to the realization that the biggest challenge of all would be the mental and social well being of humans in transit. On a trip lasting some 55 generations like the one speculated here there is no guarantee that the occupants would preserve the values with which their ancestors first set out on the journey. There is also no guarantee that they would even remain committed to the mission plan for 55 generations. Some may even feel violated to have been condemned to life in a tin can without consultation.
Yet to do the trip any quicker they would have to put up with much higher G forces which could be destructive over the long term.
What is the speed of propulsion of space craft as they arrive in the vacuum of outer space itself to their destination ?

I think I've spotted one error already. I believe that figure should be significantly higher. Not sure by how much though and it's too late at night for me to re-work the calculation now. Anyone?:)

The Most Interesting Characteristic About UFO Is In Applying Psycology To A Sighting!

Any Military Of Our World Are Not Going To Do Recon In A Craft That Is Beaming Lights Or Is Multicolored Like A Rainbow, It Goes Against The Whole Concept Of Stealth!

Which Means That Those Who Pilot The UFO's Either Have Never Encountered War Or Are Deliberatly Trying To Get Our Attention!

If They Are Trying To Get Our Attention Then What Result Would They Be Expecting From Us Seeing Them!

If Those Lit Up Like Christmas Trees Were Here To Do Harm Then Why Do The Woodstock Thing!

Attention Should Be Paid To What They Are Interested In, If Hovering Over A House Then What Or Who Resides There What Mineral Content Exists Below The House,When A Beam Is Shone To The Ground, Again Geologically What Minerals Exist, Are Their Caverns Or Underground Rivers!

Understanding What They Look For And The Commonalities Of The Individual Sightings As In Same Style Craft Acting In Similar Ways As In A Beam Of Light Over The Ground, Identifying Spots Where The Craft Has Stopped Is Of Main Interest As Something Of Interest To Them Exists To Some Extent On Or Under That Spot!

Understanding How Light Works We Can Wonder Wether Light Emmitted Is Of Significance Or A By Product Of Unseen Beam Being Used!

Obviously Humanity Have Catergorised The Different Types Of Craft Based On Shape And Behaviour, Those That Act Peacfully As Versus Those That Act Aggressivly, Knowing The Difference Between The Two Can Be Of Importance To General Populous!

Conclusion: If Aliens Are Hiding Their Presents From Us Then They Have Achieved The Equivalent Of An Elephant Hiding Behind A Sappling!

If Aggressive Then Again Works In Contrary To Psycology, Its Like Using Flashlights To Frighten The Enemy Troops!

Psycological Analysis Is That They Either Are So Arrogant That Their Presence To Us Means Nothing Or That They Deliberatly Letting Us Know They There!

How long is a piece of string?:)

The speed of propulsion of space craft as they arrive in the vacuum of outer space would depend on the type and power of the crafts' propulsion system. Requirements for that to be the case should be that no atmosphere would be impeding it and also no gravitational pull of any significance once the craft gets isolated enough from Planets, Stars and Black Holes.

There is one further factor: as the craft's velocity approaches the Speed of Light it would take ever more propulsive power to accelerate it because its mass would be increasing exponentially (theoretically at the speed of light its mass would become infinite). Laws of Physics frown on that sort of thing.:)

So before that stage is reached at some point resistance to the craft's acceleration would match its maximum power output and it could not accelerate further. Then its speed would plateau. Presumably at that point its propulsion system could be shut off and it would continue to coast indefinitely at the speed it had reached ... until or unless some outside force interferes.

Perhaps your most thought-provoking post, Daniel. Each point in it makes sense.

What we can't know for sure is whether all those points would make the same sense to representatives of an Alien civilization. They might have evolved in an environment in which natural forces that shaped our mentality are different in their world.

Let's take just one of those forces as an example. On our world all life forms have long evolved in a climate of competition. Consequently a vast range of strategies have manifested across all our species to preserve their survival against competing interests.

The 'stealth' you mention is just one of those many strategies.

Should Aliens ever visit us they could conceivably come from a background in which stealth has never had survival value. If so, then it might not occur to them to employ that strategy here.:)

True,

There Is The Fact That By Their Own Existance They Proove There Are More Worlds With Life Out There, That Being The Case There May Well Be Other Races Of The Same, Or More Advanced Levels,

Taking That Into Consideration And The Possible Differences You Have Outlined Then Possibilities Of Waring Factions Becomes A Reality!

In Which Case I Am Surprised They Have Survived At All

Still We Do Have A Rainbow Fish In Our Oceans Which Is Also Host To Sharks!

Yes that would certainly add to the level of difficulty in space travel. We all assume that space is an empty void, but yes, there are particles jettisoned from other galaxies, collisions between asteroids etc..
In that approximate context I found a couple of interesting links today:
