- Captain's log, stardate 36:24.8
- The Enterprise has passed through a "black hole" resulting from the gravitational collapse of a neutron star and lies stranded in superspace. Dr. McCoy, Lt. Uhura and myself have been escorted to Caeminion, now besieged by an army of vegetable-metalloid monsters.

- The story of Rhuna and Kyr Nostrand began in two comic book stories written by Gerry Boudreau, drawn by Walt Simonson, and published by DC Comics. In those stories, the doomsday bomb blew, the vegetable metalloids were formed, the survivors moved underground, the mind module was recovered by Kyr, and it was added to the charm bracelet. The stories were reprinted in the omnibus The Art of Walter Simonson in 1989.
- Kirk said that he has never heard of a black hole. The phenomena was explained to readers in dialogue. During contact with a cosmic storm in TOS comic: "Museum at the End of Time", the spacial phenomena would be explained in captions.
- A similar universal transposition occurred in TAS episode: "The Counter-Clock Incident" when the USS Enterprise traveled at extremely high warp through a nova and ended up in a negative universe, then returned home by traveling at high warp through a star which they had brought to life prematurely. However, subsequent events in TAS novelization: The Counter-Clock Incident revealed the experience to have been a trick.
- Transit into pocket universes by the USS Enterprise occurred in TAS episode: "The Time Trap", and in TOS comic: "Museum at the End of Time" via a vortex within a cosmic storm.
- Transit also occurred through a black hole by two 24th century vessels in TOS movie: Star Trek. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) (parallel alternate reality) appeared to be vulnerable near the event horizon and not capable of surviving the transition.
- TOS episode: "Tomorrow is Yesterday" – The gravitational pull of a black star shot the USS Enterprise backward in time by three centuries.
- TAS episode & novelization: The Counter-Clock Incident – A voyage into a negative universe.
- TAS episode: "The Time Trap" – A voyage into a pocket universe.
- TOS comic: "Museum at the End of Time" – A similar voyage into a pocket universe.
- TOS movie: Star Trek – Two ships travel through a black hole into a parallel alternate reality.
- TNG episode: "The Arsenal of Freedom" – A runaway planetary weapons system destroyed its civilization.
