just watched it, and at 1:34:51, when Carol comes onto the bridge, Kirk turns and says, "My God, Carol, look at it." You can see the viewer as he speaks, and you can see a rain of molten rock falling onto a forming planet that is clearly expanding. Makes sense if it is forming a planet out of the nebula material.
This could also be explained as: matter thrown this way by the explosion and caught Regula's gravity well
Okay how far do you think the Nebula is from Regula? Because you seemed to think it's closer than it looked in the film.
How could I know?
It is close enough to be reached by the Enterprise in a relatively short time - and she can't have had full impulse power since the Reliant could still "outrun" her.
