Re: Kirk vs the Dominion

What would that do? Black holes don't actually have greater gravitational pull than normal matter, you can just get a lot closer to the center of gravity. Since that red goop didn't appear to have much mass, if you dropped one in front of the wormhole, anyone could just fly around it so long as they were careful not to touch it directly, and even then you'd probably pass through it because very few molecules would actually get close enough to it to be inside its event horizon.

Black holes aren't magic gravity, they're just really dense matter, everybody knows that.

Re: Kirk vs the Dominion

The folks who made the movie don't seem to. Sometimes they fly through them to another time. Sometimes they can fly away from them. Sometimes they can't. Sometimes they get crushed by them. Just whatever needs to happen at the time.

I don't mind bending reality for the sake of a sci-fi setting, but I really do wish they'd be consistent at least in the same movie with what they're doing with the black holes.
