Runabouts were just really, really big shuttles and they could do warp 5, and have torpedo attachments and the like. I remember reading the in TNG technical manual that some shuttles could do Warp 2 or 4 or the like.
Voyager's shuttles managed warp 9 without so much as breaking a sweat (one managed warp 10 twice... but we don't talk about that episode). I guess Starfleet lumped Picard with some obsolete models
You know.. lizards or not, why didn't they just use that warp 10 to get home? The doctor reversed it easy enough.

Or send the Doctor back as a messanger saying "Hey, we're fine."
The show suffered heavily from Gilligan's Island Syndrome.
