Actually Roberto Orci is very knowledgeable about science, at least by Hollywood standards. I have the impression that earlier drafts of the script may have had a more scientifically plausible version of the disaster. But as the director/producer, Abrams had the final say on the script and dialogue, and he may have decided that the simpler supernova idea was more efficient to get across onscreen or less distracting from the character stories he was more interested in telling.
