I think it fits into the overall motif of the scene; tragic irony. Also, it fits into my personal view of the whole movie: a campfire story full of exaggerations and coincidences, told more for high drama and to emphasize the themes of the story. In this case, the notions of family and brotherhood. As far as I am concerned, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy never left the camp site. I consider the whole movie a tall tale told by Kirk, to explain his beliefs about how he was never alone and how important his Enterprise family is to him. How else can you explain a 75-deck starship that traversed to the center of the galaxy in a matter of hours? Comes across more like a Trek version of Baron Munchausen. Just my two cents worth...
