    Columbia cleared the docking bay and moved off at impulse for several kilometers then engaged her warp drive. She was clear of the structure by some distance.

    We've seen ships go to warp out of, or into, planetary atmospheres without any problems before anyway.

    I thought that was a good idea since Columbia was the second vessel with the Warp 5 engine- it it did not fire up just right a massive antimatter explosion that close to Earth's atmosphere would probably get someone upset.

    Her warp drive was functional, it just wasn't running at full capacity until Trip tweaked a few things with the reactor. She was stable and probably already had the core up and running a while prior to leaving.

    I like the modified refit there.

    The whole.... in system warp jump thing is usually just used for artificial drama. As presented in the shows, the only issue with it would be having to clear any planetary bodies you might smash into. I'm just assuming that either the navigator would compensate for this or the computer would go warning, the course you set will crash you into Uranus.
