Plot hole: In the scene where Lewis and Clark nearly hit the Event Horizon, One of the crew is calling out the closing distance and another confirms this information. Regardless of clouds obscuring their view they were aware of their proximity and the fact that they were speeding towards it and forced to attempt an abrupt stop makes no sense.
In the end, it turns out that the ship has, indeed, been to hell (or a dimension that resembles it), and that Dr. Weir, the scientist who created the ship goes completely insane and is now under the ships' control (or the entity/s occupying it). When the crew try to leave he blows up their ship with the pilot, onboard (who refused to leave but rather tried to find the bomb). Crewmen who oppose him also die, with one having his chest ripped open then left strung up by wires stuck into his slashed to shreds torso flesh. They eventually kill him, but he is reincarnated by the hellish powers of the ship. In the end, Captain Miller distracts Weir by engaging him in a smackdown while Starck, Cooper and Justin are able to blow up the part of the ship with the black hole (along with Weir and Miller). Starck, Cooper and Justin survive ~ all the rest of the crew members perish. But Starck has a vision of Dr. Weir being one of the men coming to rescue the survivors...
Miller: Vacate! I want off this ship.
Dr. Weir: You can't leave. She won't let you.
Miller: You just get your gear and get back on the Lewis and Clark, Doctor, or you'll find yourself walkin' home.
Dr. Weir: I am home.
Trivia: Pneumatic palm sanders were used as hatch door switches for the gravity drive room and the access-way leading to it. Do a Google image search for "Pneumatic Palm Sander" to see examples of the tool. It's a vintage or classic style that's used in the film. (00:26:45)
Question: 1) In the big finale where the gateway was opened: was the ship destroyed before it went through the wormhole or did it blow up as it was going through - trapping everyone in Hell? 2) In the final scene just before the gateway is opened, there is an argument going about whether Miller's crew are alive or dead and talk about them belonging to the ship. We saw the crew die, so I fail to understand the mental imagery of their suffering Miller was shown. Also, if the crew belong to the ship to replace her old crew - why haven't we seen anything of the old crew?
