"The Lost World" is an example of where "world" has a meaning other than "planet."

The ST2 script specifically says "planet". I'm not aware that "planet" has a meaning other than "Big round thing that orbits a star."
Except that the post you are replying to was specifically responding to an entirely different line that you quoted. No one was talking about the word "planet" because that's not what you brought up:

"A new world being born" is quite clear.
It should also be noted that in pretty much almost every context, a dead class D moon being transformed into a lush class M planet would warrant terminology such as "new world" and anyone in ear shot of the conversation wouldn't give it a second thought.
"You have been examined. Your ship must be destroyed. We make assumption you have a deity, or deities, or some such beliefs which comfort you. We therefore grant you ten Earth time periods known as minutes to make preparations."
