As she states in the episode, they were at that time
*surrounded* and if they turned to fire, would get destroyed.
Firepower doesn't solve every problem; one good hand-held Lancet
missile can put down a full-sized cruiser if it hits right. They were
in the MIDDLE of the Drakh, just as they said, and that's NOT a
defensible position. They had to get away, outside that group, so they
could mount an offensive. This they did.

So re: Jenoff's comments...another example of a self-styled
critic who faults the show when the information is right there...the
problem is the perceiver, not the perceived. I can't be held
responsible for critics not thinking through what's said right there on
camera.
