comment Max rocket speed in interstellar space?
Drag is limited due to the asymptotic approach; the drag is the mass of particles hit, which is directly proportional to speed. If thrust is low (like ion drives), it will limit speed to .99C or so; if thrust is high, the balance point would be superluminal, and thus not actually stop the speed climb towards C.
