Re: FC plothole? Why didn't the Borg create the vortex in the Delta Q?
As I said before, what a ship technically can do, perhaps even with negligible risk, isn't necessarily what's considered "best practice".
Alternately, as Christopher said, perhaps that sequence shouldn't be taken literally.
Ultimately television and movies work under the principle of show don't tell. If you can't understand what's going on even without dialogue then in a sense they've failed in that respect to properly convey the storyline.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
