Goofs

Willie and Brian make a radio contact with another Melmacian, Skip, who says he is "headed for Andromeda". Since Andromeda is 2.5 *million* light years away, Skip obviously has to be using *faster-than-light* traveling if he's ever going to make it there, so how can he have a radio contact with Willie when radio signals travel "only" at the speed of light?
