Its scale is inconsistent. It's much bigger in one of the shots. That the Enterprise's edges are out of frame matters little
It matters quite a bit, since we have no way to judge the relative sizes of the saucer (of EITHER ship) because we can't see all of it. Not that we're really MEANT to, the scene is cropped that way so that the saucer looks like a solid wall of pain that the ship now has to suddenly avoid.
Huh? Things further away look smaller. If it is farther from the camera and looks bigger than the thing closer to the camera, it is bigger.

Which depends mainly on your depth of field, as well you know.
Double 'huh?'... Please explain what kind of depth of field makes objects far away look bigger than close objects.
