    LotR and The Silmarillion should cover most of the time, with Douglass Adams's HGttG when you need a good chuckle.....

    Should probably take War & Peace along as well...

    I would suggest an unabridged Websters dictionary, and perhaps a few others from different languages. Make it educational as well.

    Oh, and probably a copy of PhotoShop CS 52 or Campaign Cartographer 26 so that you can map the cosmos as you zoom along.

    They're probably too busy working on the next generation...

    If I'm remembering my relativity correctly, the people on earth would measure the time it takes for the ship to travel a light year at light speed to be 1 year. However for the people on the ship it would be very little time indeed - vanishing to zero as they reach the speed of light. However you can never reach the speed of light, so really the perceived time would merely get smaller and smaller depending on how close to the speed of light you managed to get.

    So actually, forget war and peace - if your tech is really good, you'd best pack a few dvds and then you're there.

    This also avoids the ageing issue (apart from the fact that when you arrive back at earth you'll be answering to your former commander's great grandchildren).
