Still, the saucer didn't arrive more than a few minutes after the battle section, and in "Arsenal of Freedom" it is explicitly sent off to the nearest starbase from a sublight start. There's no point at all of doing that if the ship can't considerably close the distance by itself. At sublight speeds you're taking a minute or two off a rescue ship's travel time.
The point is taking the saucer out of the combat zone.
