One thought on “S01E19 Coming of Age

  1. The shuttle engines shut down and required a complete restart, which is why Picard needed to use the gravitational pull of the planet to accelerate the shuttle. The shuttle only had maneuvering thrusters functioning, was moving too fast to not burn up in the atmosphere, and was already caught in the planets’ gravity. Engine restart time exceeded time before burn up.
