There are 2 valid reasons about not firing torpedoes in that situation.

1 - Not a good idea to fire them at close range when your shields are down!
Would be true in TOS series era, but in the movies, the torps sometimes seem little more powerful than a cannonball. The ones in SFS are fired at extremely close range and there's still no blowback on the party doing the shooting (and the shields are down throughout.)
