The movie “Star Trek” is many things, but completely realistic is not one of them. For example, in the opening scene of the movie two warships meet and a battle ensues, which involved many explosions and flames. Now these occurrences may be plausible to some degree. There is oxygen inside the impacted ship which would cause a brief flame, but this doesn't explain how most of the fires that occurred on The Enterprise were long lasting.

In addition, entering a black hole would not only take thousands of years to occur, according to “Spaghetti theory” the gravity would be so intense as you neared the center of the black hole, your body would be stretched out into a thin strip of organic matter. Not to mention that this is all assuming that black holes are connected to other black holes in some separate universe and at a different time. Speaking of which, since time is relative, Spock going into the black hole a few seconds after The Narada, and coming out after it has been 25 years is quite plausible. So both the timeframe and how this scene was portrayed have little scientific background and is most likely
