In the actual movie, though, the saucer is moving cleanly away until the shockwave hits it and sends it flying towards Veridian III (the saucer is actually seen being knocked nose down). With the helm dead, there's nothing anyone sitting at the helm could have done to prevent the ship from crashing.
After the shockwave hit? No.
Yes. That's exactly what happened. The shockwave sent the saucer flying towards Veridian III and knocked the helm offline, so there was nothing Troi or anyone else could have done.
