I got an idea. Put someone in a thruster suit, attach a strong cable to him, have that person attach it to the ship and tow it away.
Takes too much time. Radiation will fry them before that. Just because there's no weight in zero gravity, an object still has its mass. A thruster suit just hasn't got enough thrust to move a starship anywhere in any reasonable amount of time. Sure, you can get it moving, just very very very slowly.
The other end of the cable would be attached to the Enterprise. And if you're worried about radiation, just put Data in the suit. He can survive time distortions.
