Much appreciated, Janus, for simplifying things. I understand better now.

Usually we consider an object being ripped apart as it approaches the sun (because the sun is the more massive thing)...Must this very long stick, out of a certain other alloy, be ripped apart for sure? Is it at all likely for the stick to get not too close or too far from the Sun, just the right distance, so that it wouldn't be ripped apart, rather form a stable ring (which You call a sphere, perhaps a Dyson sphere, even if the stick, rather than a wall, is no more than, say, 20 cm wide)?
Presumably that force-field along the edges of the stick is also sufficient to keep it long and straight rather than collapsing together to form a sphere.This part I don't get (science is not my strong suit). I thought that space is bent around the star, so how can this stick defy space that is bent, even if equipped with EM field? Isn't the stick, well, inside this space that is bent around the Star - where else could it be? - so no matter how strong or resistant the stick is, it ought to bend, at the very least, just like the space it occupies? I guess I'm talking nonsense to You, neither do I completely comprehend gravity, being a bit more confused than usual. Perhaps this story is too ambitious for me. Aw.
But what if the ship is designed to look like a great blue whale.That is another project of mine. I had the idea about a year back. I guess we all think alike, more or less. Heh, hope they won't sue me for plagiarism, even though that was never and never will be my intention.
Forgive me for asking... I'm Not Objecting over your SF.At the moment the idea is a draft, but the ship human starship encounters might actually be some unusual phenomenon, perhaps it is pregnant with colors that colored the cosmos on a level no mortal could understand, as differences in wavelengths are being watched by mysterious ship's sensor that can penetrate almost any part of the cosmos searching for a particular thing at a time, something like that. Nebulous, I guess, but I'll work on the passage later on when I get to it. Thanks for Your thoughts.
But Why is the ship acting like a Chameleon?
Why is it not just Simply camouflaging?
(...)Earth has no edge or borders because of its shape like a ball, and yet it is finite. Is it at all possible that, regarding infinity, that it "has" borders, its just that we can never reach them because they are infinitely far away from us? Imagine a pebble infinitely distant from Earth, teleported into an unimaginably distant point in spacetime by technologically advanced alien race Sipons, of course. Who else? Is infinity, in this case, "distance" that is always the same? If distance of the most distant point of static infinity, relative to Earth, is always the same, then it represents some kind of a border, unless the pebble continues traveling, at an infinite speed, rather than just occupy the same point in spacetime. However, if the universe is constantly expanding, then infinity could have no borders, no edges, if the universe travels at an infinite speed. What you are proposing is some sort of static space, static infinity regarding its farthest point from Earth. This, I am afraid, nobody or very few could imagine, forwhy to be without a border, the universe "must" be "expanding", which cancels static infinity as such, but expanding at an infinite speed - so that the expanding infinity does not get compromised. Static infinity ought to have a border, an edge, while expanding infinity, expanding at an unimaginable, infinite speed, could be the real infinity here.
That means that I don't expect limits inside SpaceTime. I don't expect you to go out to the left to come in to the right.
I call that a limit, and limits presume borders neighboring to something else. It's Buck Rogers in my mind.
