    • When the star begins to nova, Tin Man throws the Enterprise (and we presume, also the Romulan vessel) clear of the explosion. When the Enterprise stops Wesley states that Tin Man has thrown the Enterprise "3.8 billion kilometers" clear of the Nova. The journey takes only a few seconds of screen time, and we are given the impression that the vessel has been 'whisked away' by Tin Man. The nova is then seen flaring on the viewscreen. 3.8 billion kilometers is approximately 3.5 'light hours' distance. Assuming that they are observing visible light - and not something esoteric like 'sub-space ambient warp field fluctuations' rendered by the computer into a "visible recreation" - the Enterprise should not be able to detect the nova visibly for hours.
