Theoretically, Purple Matter is a substance that’s alleged to generate a black gap; so in that respect, it does what it says on the tin. Only one drop is meant to have the ability to, say, “collapse a star, or consume an entire planet.” So don’t put these things in your chili canines, of us; since you gained’t be the one who’s getting fed in that state of affairs. Nevertheless, as Ambassador Spock tried to avoid wasting Romulus from its solar going into supernova, the ensuing black gap quelled that exact catastrophe too late to realize its desired impact. Which result in each Spock’s craft, the Jellyfish, and Nero’s craft, the Narada, being sucked into its vortex, and rising at two completely different time limits.
Star Trek’s time journey is inexact, and it wasn’t even alleged to occur. It’s additionally a one-way journey again into the previous, as there’s no method to precisely measure the place or while you’re going to finish up. So Ambassador Spock’s future will all the time lead him to the previous, and a model new model of its occasions, the second he lastly emerges from the black gap.
