It was there to heighten the tension just like every Star Trek that came before it.

This constant drum beating to find something to complain about is getting old and stupid.
I can't believe the uniforms were a shade darker than what they were in TOS! An outrage, I declare! I demand the writers be tarred and feathered!

Actually the line still makes total sense but I'm too tired to explain why in a huge amount of detail.

Suffice it to say that an "unsafe distance" doesn't have to be the same thing as "a distance at which we have no possibility whatsoever of escape". After all, they barely made it out alive. I would say that they had passed safe distance long before they actually tried to get away.

I took the officer's line (and panicked expression) as hyperbole. Then again, a lot of stuff that gets yelled on the bridge is hyperbole isn't it?

Same here. She was panicking, and was jumping the gun, I think.

Her name is Sabrina Morris.

Did someone declare this "Everybody Bump Old Threads" Week and I just never got the memo? Closing.
