Other mistake: They show the tether and tether anchor fall out of the ship and fall behind, much in the same way as throwing something out of a car. However, it was still in the warp bubble and should have continued to be moving at warp 5 with the ships. We see later Columbia extend its warp bubble around Enterprise and Enterprise remains at warp 5 after cutting their engines. But, if the tether is no longer affected by the warp bubble, it should have been instantaneously out of view.
Captain Archer: We should be entering the nebula.
Subcommander T'Pol: The readings could be misleading.
