Re: The Genesis planet...
No, they specifically were running from the Genesis detonation.
"Specifically?" Based on what? From what I recall of the dialogue, there is nothing that specifically says it is the Genesis wave that will destroy the Enterprise
. Yes, they're monitoring the countdown to its detonation, but that could simply be because they know it's detonation will also simultaneously detonate the Reliant
's warp core, which might be the real threat to the Enterprise
When Kirk looks to David after getting the time and distance report, David shakes his head. They were running from Genesis.
