The really big thing was the way they got away from the black hole at the end. They ejected all the warp engine cores and blew them up so that the explosion would give them a push to get going. First off any explosion would have been swallowed by the black hole. Second, you've just expended the power cells that fuels your engines. How would they get away?
It actually was a quarry, so that's semi-plausible. However, the area looked way too flat and barren to be eastern Iowa.
And the impulse engines aren't powered by the warp core. But yeah, the black hole would have swallowed the explosion. That was lame.
