Parallax

In "Parallax", one of the early episodes of Star Trek: Voyager, the ship ended up accidentally getting stuck inside a singularity (don't ask). Along with several copies of itself from different times (please don't ask!), and they couldn't tell which one was "really" themselves (please don't ask!). They eventually decided that their only hope was to send out a shuttlecraft to probe the interface to find "the hole in the singularity" (pretty please with SUGAR on it?) before it closed up.

I told you not to ask.

The phrase "the hole in the singularity" is stupid and meaningless from a physics point of view, but it is inspiring for filk. This one would probably go well with hand motions.

Lyrics copyright 1995 by Joel Polowin. To "Hole In the Bottom of the Sea", traditional.

 

There's a hole in the singularity
There's a hole in the singularity
There's a hole, there's a hole
There's a hole in the singularity

There's a ship trying to find the hole...

There's a shuttle from the ship...

There's a dekion beam from the shuttle...

There's a weird effect from the dekion beam...

There's a plot built around the weird effect...

There's a zillion holes in the plot...

They fly the ship through the zillion giant holes...
