1) If you think that the two star System Bosch was looking at in one of the cutscenes was Capella you're sadly mistaken
2) Capella is a twin yellow giant system (with other smaller stars in orbit around the two big ones).
3) [V] got the science (and grammer) wrong and refer to the Capella star indicating they've got Capella as a single star system.
4) A white dwarf feeding from a larger star does not always result in a supernova. Usually the matter builds up to where the star gets hot enough to begin fusion again and the star goes nova (but not supernova).
