From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

A wormhole was a passage which links two separate points in space-time, usually serving as a shortcut between those two points.

The Swarm traveled from planet to planet through wormholes they created. One of these linked the planets San Helios and Earth, through which the passengers of a London bus (including the Doctor and Lady Christina de Souza) arrived. The wormhole was eventually closed by Professor Malcolm Taylor before most of the Swarm could get through, thus saving the world. These wormholes contained high amounts of dangerous energy and instantly incinerated anything that passes through it. The only way to survive a journey through the wormhole was with a metal shield enclosing the occupants (even a damaged vehicle would suffice). The Swarm could travel through their wormholes due to their metal exoskeletons. (DW: Planet of the Dead)

The Shalka were capable of converting black holes into wormholes. (WC: Scream of the Shalka)

During the Millennium War, the Osirians stopped the Mad Mind of Bophemeral from creating a wormhole in the Horsehead Nebula, which would have killed quintillions. (PDA: The Quantum Archangel)

Phobos had a wormhole located on its surface. (BBCR/BFA: Phobos)

The Bajoran wormhole, located in the Bajor system.

A wormhole is a conduit in space that connects two points of space-time together throught subspace. A wormhole has a mouth at each end of the conduit that allows anything can travel through the wormhole. If a large enough, or stable enough wormhole is found then starships can pass through the wormhole and travel a great distance in relatively little time.

Overview

A wormhole-like phenomenon is created by a warp drive if the engines are not properly calibrated or balanced. These phenomena are highly unstable and dangerous. (TOS movie: Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

Studies showed that in order for the construction of an artificial wormhole to be possible, one would be required to construct a Verteron collider of at least eight kilometers in length. Another notable problem was not the size of the machinery involved but instead was the exotic construction material needed in order to create a permanent site. The mouth of an artificial wormhole with its outward radial pressure had tremendous tidal tension which was similar to the center of a massive neutron star. Thus, any building material would need to stand up to that kind of pressure for the wormhole to continue being stable. (DS9 novel: Behind Enemy Lines)

History

No natural stable wormholes have yet been discovered in the Alpha or Beta Quadrants.

A wormhole in Andorian space existed before collapsing in 2069; it left behind an ion-plasma energy field. During its existence, the wormhole prevented the Andorians from achieving space travel for many years. (ST roleplay module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook)

In 2366, it was believed that the Barzan wormhole discovered near Barzan II was a stable passage between the Alpha and Gamma Quadrants. The Barzans opened up bidding for the wormhole and the Federation and the Ferengi Alliance were the principal bidders. However, tests by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D revealed that while the Alpha "end" was stable, the other end was constantly moving around, which resulted in a Ferengi team being stranded in the Delta Quadrant. (TNG episode: "The Price")

In the final year of the Occupation of Bajor, the Obsidian Order agent Leej Terrel of the Applied Science Directorate discovered one of the Red Orbs of Jalbador and attemtped to use it to make artificial wormholes for the Cardassian Union. However, an incident along with the evacuvation of Terok Nor forced her to abandon her experiments. (DS9 novel: Millennium)

The only known artificially stable wormhole, the Bajoran wormhole, was discovered in the Denorios Belt of the Bajor system by Commander Benjamin Sisko in 2369. Sisko discovered that the wormhole had been constructed by the Prophets, and they would allow traffic to pass through the wormhole into the Gamma Quadrant. (DS9 episode: "Emissary")

The alien race known as the Shepherds were known to dwell within wormholes and had the capacity of manipulating them. (VOY novel: Cloak and Dagger) The Romulan Star Empire began research into the creation of stable artificial wormholes with some success being made by Telek R'Mor. He was later aided in his research by the rogue Shepherd Ambassador Lhaiu. (VOY novel: Ghost Dance)

The ancient Furies who were banished in the Delta Quadrant had the knowledge to create an artificial wormhole by destroying their star which created a subspace explosion that produced a shortly lived but stable wormhole across quadrants. (VOY novel: The Final Fury)

In 2373, the Dominion was working on creating an artificial wormhole on the otherside of the Badlands near Sector 283. (DS9 novel: Behind Enemy Lines)

The Caeliar were able to produce wormhole-like subspace tunnels for observation and communication with distant galaxies. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)

From Muppet Wiki

A wormhole is a hypothetical tunnel through space-time which may be traversable and allow matter (such as a spaceship or person) to travel very quickly between two places in the universe that are normally very far apart. The term was introduced in 1957 by physicist John Wheeler, and derives from a "real world" example used to describe the phenomenon. Imagine a worm crawling around an apple; if it burrows straight through the apple to the other side it will get there faster. A wormhole traveller takes a similar shortcut through the universe.

Although they are still hypothetical in science, wormholes have long been staples of science fiction, allowing characters to travel quickly from one side of the Galaxy or Universe to the other, and sometimes even through time. Wormholes are an integral part of the Farscape universe.

At the beginning of Farscape, Crichton travels through a wormhole from earth, and finds himself in the middle of Moya and Pilot's escape from the Peacekeepers. It later becomes apparent that he has the knowledge of wormhole technology in his head, something that Scorpius would very much like to have for himself.

Atomos (アトモス Atomosu), also known as Atmos, is a recurring creature that has appeared as a summon, boss, and story element in various Final Fantasy games. Its signature attack, Wormhole, can sometimes remove a character from battle.

Appearances

Final Fantasy

Atomos in the 20th Anniversary version.
Main article: Atomos (Final Fantasy)

Atomos is an optional boss appearing exclusively in the Dawn of Souls and PlayStation Portable versions of the original Final Fantasy. It can be found in the Lifespring Grotto.

When using Wormhole, it attacks for regular damage. The character is sucked into Atomos and falls from the top of the screen back to their place.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

The Atmos sprite, slightly different from the original Final Fantasy V one.
Main article: Atmos (The After Years)

Like its appearance in Dawn of Souls, Final Fantasy V's Atomos appears in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, albeit called Atmos.

Final Fantasy V

Main article: Atomos (Final Fantasy V)

Atomos' first appearance, as a boss guarding the Barrier Tower outside of Castle Exdeath. It is famous for being a rather difficult enemy, as it was capable of using Comet, often knocking out a character with one hit, followed by dragging and sucking them in with gravity until he eventually uses Wormhole, removing the character from battle altogether.

Final Fantasy XI

Atomos appears in the same realm between the past and the future as Cait Sith in the Wings of the Goddess expansion. It is a swirling vortex that can be seen in the sky of this realm. Objects closely resembling Atomos called "Cavernous Maws" are used to travel between the past and present in the Wings of the Goddess expansion. Other than that, very little is known about him thus far.

Final Fantasy XII

Main article: Atomos (Final Fantasy XII)

Atomos appears as a Rank III Mark in the Northern Skirts area of the Mosphoran Highwaste.

Etymology

Atomos comes from Atom, the smallest particle of a chemical element that retains its chemical properties.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A wormhole created by Palpatine.

A hyperspace wormhole was a tunnel in hyperspace itself that connected two Realspace locations to one another. Though a rare sight, they were sometimes able to be used as a shortcut, allowing for faster than normal travel.

The use of a Gravitic Polarization Beam could create hyperspace wormholes. Palpatine, in his work The Book of Anger, detailed how one could manipulate the dark side of the Force to create and control such wormholes. When the Emperor created a wormhole to swallow a New Republic fleet, the combined efforts of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and the unborn Anakin Solo were able to defeat the Emperor and destroy the wormhole.
