Q: Works with zero melodrama and very mature protagonists like Star Trek:TNG?

MichaelZGene Rodenberry’s farsighted rule of zero melodrama for Star Trek, that was was actually strictly followed at least for the first few seasons of TNG, was quite unique in retrospect.

@AncientSwordRage I think you might have been a bit hasty closing Book about subterranean world entered thru sub-basements.
It gives a date and a couple of key plot points, so it seems pretty clear to me. Several of us immediately recognised the book.

Oleksii CherednichenkoI remember the plot quite clearly but can't really find the short story title, hence my question to you.

Q: Story with "black hole jail"

Colin m GilkerStory or book I read at least 10 years ago in which a girl is imprisoned in a black hole or black hole-like structure. She encounters longer-imprisoned, monstrously spaghettified cellmates. I feel it was a "battle between good and evil" story akin to A wrinkle in time.
