Comic #3097

1 Serron: The negative space wedgie is sucking us in, like some sort of space quicksand!
1 Paris: Reverse thrust!
2 Iki Piki: No good! It's making us go in faster!
3 Paris: Spanners! Reverse polarity of the engines! Then reverse will make us go forwards, which will counter the negative space warp and pull us out!
4 Spanners: Uh... let me just inject some actual physics into this conversation, if I may.

This was actually a central plot element in an original Star Trek episode: "The Immunity Syndrome".

Reversing the engines making the ship go forwards faster, that is, not actual physics.
