  • Trivia

    • While it is certainly true that time slows down near a black hole, the episode has many scientific flaws (more than should be expected of a science fiction show). For one, the only way for the sun to become a black hole would be for it to go supernova, which would wipe the solar system out very rapidly; there's no way they would have time to get to the gate. Besides that, the gravitational pull of a black hole is not stronger than that of its progenitor star, so if these effects happened after the sun turned into a black hole, they should have happened before that as well.
