^^I just visited EAS and LOL'd at this quote:
Seeing that the people in charge have lost perspective of ship sizes, we may decide that it all doesn't matter any longer, or we settle on a more reasonable size for the Enterprise. so we are dealing with a Vengeance of "only" some 750m and not one mile.
Translation: I don't like their bigger ships so I'm ignoring the movie and pulling this number out of my ass.
Actually, if you assume Sulu's line "He just jumped 30m!" refers to the gap in the saucer
Or if you assume Sulu knows what he's talking about and/or isn't just eyeballing the distance without really measuring it.
E.g. "He just jumped, like, thirty meters!"
