Sulu: We're 237,000 km from Earth!
240000 km from Earth sounds like peanuts compared to the ~1 AU of Soran's rocket in Generations. If children fireworks can take 1 AU in 6 seconds, why couldn't a ship that just dropped out of warp, received massive photon torpedo bombardment and felt the enormous shockwave from the explosion of 72 experimental torpedoes, make it well into Earth's gravity well in a few minutes (or hours, because unless Sulu also mentions the time, it is also unclear)?
