Wait a minute. Surely they just have to send a ship out to a few light-days from where the Enterprise was destroyed and point a camera? They'd catch the lightwave and see it all.

Yeah, but with effectively zero perspective, so it wouldn't look like the shot in the movie where the ship is close to the camera and there's obvious diminishing of features with distance.
