Right. My thought is if he is trapped in a Q mine, who else is better suited to get him out (if he's still alive . . . . ). Great astrophysics concept, btw.
Ah, the toroidal continuum fold... actually built out of a couple of real scientific thingies to produce an interesting hybrid - and who knows, maybe they can be!

I swear, though, between that and the whole Split Infinite Tipler and wormhole thing, next time I'm going to pitch something a damn sight simpler to wrap my head around...
I consider myself fairly well educated in space science and I got to say I had a hard time wrapping my brain around that one with the Hera being fluxed and such. But that is what was great about it; the concept was so alien and a challenge to our normal picture of the universe. I have always found pocket universes and similar concepts fascinating. The second half of the book was like Titan with its story wrapped around a strange scientific theory. It is the kind of idea that makes Trek special.
