So, tonight was the big night. About an hour or so in, my husband's first thought was 2001, and mine was The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Maybe it's one of those Mars-Venus things?
Of course we both knew that a FTL jump near a black hole always means travel to an expected time and/or parallel universe, so maybe we're on the same wavelength after all.
More when I've had time to actually think about it a bit . . .
