The plot centers around a light-speed engine that would be of immense value to one of the alien races given how fast it will allow them to travel through space. Their method of travel, however, is already drastically faster than light speed. Utilizing this engine would actually slow them down considerably.
This could have been made clearer in the movie, but the FTL travel used by the Kree is a network of "jump points", essentially stable wormholes. This is the same method used in both Guardians films. The jump points exist in fixed locations and lead to other fixed locations, and their distribution is irregular. The lightspeed engine described in the film would presumably permit travel at lightspeed (or faster) directly rather than by means of jump points. This would enable trips to places that might not be readily reachable by jumps, and therefore would make a ship with such an engine much harder to track and follow for someone without such an engine.

You know you're glowing, right?
I'll explain it later.
[Carol opens the lunch box, revealing the Tesseract while Fury removes Goose's muzzle]
Take the Tesseract. Leave the lunch box.
I'm not touching that thing.
You want me to get you an oven mitt?

This movie feels out of place in the MCU, it feels Fury is not the same character we meet (only) 10 years later. The movie tries to force us to like Brie Larson, not Carol Danvers or Captain Marvel. The character feels like a mix between Tony Stark, Thor and Feminist Captain America. To make things worse, at the end she is way to OP. However, the movie had some good jokes, it was not over preachy. Sure there where some Cringe moments, but all in all it could be worse. The best part of this movie is the 90's nostalgia, Ben Medelsohn, Fury&Goose and The Kree. BUT the Kree do not get that much screen time, they feel like The Warriors 3 with even less to do. The intro does gave me shivers, what a tribute to Stan Lee. I would say Captain Marvel is Solo: A Star Wars Story mixed with The Incredible Hulk, a fun popcorn movie but nothing more.
