Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
At first I thought it needed to be at the center of a major gravity well for Red Matter to create a singularity. I thought that is why they bothered to drill. But then they created one in open space. Unless the mass and warp drive of his ship was creates enough of a gravity well to start the process.
For the open space one, they said that if the red matter go detonated, then it would result in a singularity. And, if you think about it, dropping some of that stuff in a supernova or in the core of a planet is as good as detonating it.
