Worst science goofs

After reading Allegiance in Exile, I decided to reread The Lost Years. Most of the way through, I came across this humdinger:

The Lost Years wrote:
She programmed the computer to send out a distress signal on a frequency monitors by all Romulan vessels. It warned of the ship's imminent destruction, and instructed all vessels to stay clear. The effects of the explosion would be felt over an area of roughly one square parsec.
Area, volume, what's a dimension between friends? What other fun science goofs have you noted in TrekLit?

(The Hobus Supernova is well-trodden ground already.)
