It's enough of a no-no for the Defiant crew to be worried about the ramifications. It's doable, but risky.

275 is the canon torpedo armament of Galaxy class ships. So most of that would be about 66%, or about 160 torpedos. Thats just to destroy an asteroid.

There's a difference between warpin a small distance (what is just ridicilous) and going a full circel around a ship.
an SSd is 17km long. So you fly 289km in a circel. this at a few million km a
second. see where i'm getting at. You'll be thousand of times on the same spot every second.
In what episode do you see a ST ship fly in circels at warp. This i got to see.

And again. The asteroid was massive. It was planet sized. It made a Warbird look tiny. Enterprise-D fit into and flew around in this asteroid. Stop harping on a lost cause.
And just to pick on you 66% of 275 torpedos would give you 182 torpedos.

In one of the ST movies, I believe it was the very first one actually, they did warp 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.6, 0.74, 0.76, 0.94, 0.99, 1.0, etc... they were calling out numbers as they SLOWLY pushed upto warp 1 to test the new engines.
So, in theory, the Ent-E could do Warp 0.05 around the SSD and blow it to hell piecemeal via quantum torpedos.

Warp removes the physical limitation of light speed. It is very possible to travel faster than light in a short space, simply because, in a circle, you will return to the starting point in milliseconds rather than seconds. To the human eye this is virtually instantaneous, but you won't crash into your own ship don't worry.
Think of the speed measurement like this: at light speed ~300K km/s, travelling 50 000km can be thought of as 50 000km every one-sixth of a second. Still a time measurement, but less than your linear one-second limitation.

Anyhoo I digress...

That's exactly how he did it - he reprogrammed it... as he said, he didn't like to loose and he didn't believe in a "no win" situation.
Trek CADETS are that smart... how do you think the ones that makes Captain or Commodore or Admiral are going to be after YEARS of experience (Picard for example).
Now, compare that kind of ingenuity against the average Star Wars commander who is more focused on NOT pissing off Vader (and thus getting force chocked) instead of actually being intelligent.
In Trek, you don't follow orders and it turns out it was for a good reason, you get commended.
In Wars, you never get the CHANCE not to follow orders.

@FoolfromHell I did like that fanmovie you posted though. Would like to see more of the same.
Maybe you should try ROBOCHICKEN in youtube.
StarWars animation from seth green. I bet you'll like that.

I'm sorry but i made a litle mistake in the calculation. a circle with a 50000km radius is about (50000 x 50000) 2500 000 000km distace to fly. So you are wright. Warping around a ship is posible. lightspeed is only 300k km a sec.
2500 000 000 divided by 300 000 is 8333.33 so you fly excact 83 minutes to complete the cicle at warp one. I hope this is wright?
by these calculations it would be safe to make a circle around a ship with a radious of 547.72km. at warp one that is.

Hell, max impulse is enough to escape the turbolasers. The turrets cant move at 80%c!!
Also, I watch Robot Chicken every day on Adult Swim. I like the one where Darth Vader calls Palpatine to tell him the 1st Death Star was destroyed.
Here is one.

Just showing you that you won't crash into yourself!
