See the example above though, it's moving less than the speed of light relative to one object but faster relative to an other. I'm guessing this is where the "the concept of a velocity between them is non existant" comes in. This seems very interesting.
Seen as light appears to be traveling at the same speed away from you whether you're standing still or moving at millions of miles an hour, the question is meaningless. Stop trying to apply Newtonian mechanics to these sort of problems!

Don't try apologising. You're obviously a terrible person for conducting this heinous crime!

Arrange to have me beheaded, with my head to left on a spike in the middle of Cambridge, as an example to all those who might be tempted to use the classical notions of velocity, or displacement in inappropriate situations.
