It's not really possible to exceed that speed limit in traditional terms as it would violate special relativity. Instead, it's more likely we would find a way around space. Many ideas are suggested for that, mainly ones involving changing the medium or using other tricks to shorten the distance rather than go faster.
We may not be able to travel at light speed but certainly past it. Folding space - not wormholes - must be possible. How else can you explain entanglement? Either that or it's our perception that's flawed. I saw that postulated once in SciAm that space was essentially flat and our brains our the problem in how we perceive it. It would certainly lend credence to folding space a la the old piece of paper trick with the pencil through the two points. I'd imagine that's how aliens must travel. Of course they probably have the spice from Arakis too.
