Re: Saucer Separation

I don't see why they could not have just dragged the barge with the tractor beam upwards out of the orbital plane and gone back later. Most of Trek considers ship/planetary orbits on a single plane- just discard that two dimensional thinking and move it at right angles to that plane. No asteroids or planets will be close and you could return whenever you wanted to for a proper disposal...
