After Kirk has de-cloaked the missile launcher, Picard races up to the control panel and begins fiddling with it, in an attempt to scupper Soran's plan of attracting the Nexus (a weird wibbly-wobbly string of plasma that teleports you to a utopian reality) towards the planet by detonating the missile into the nearby Sun. He is moderately successful in this venture, but Soran races over before he can finish what he is doing (or so the audience is led to believe).
"Picard!" Soran yells, pointing his gun at the captain, "get away from that launcher!" Picard moves back, before running away. Soran rushes up the launcher to see what Picard has done. With only 3 seconds to go, spots Picard has put the holding clamps on the missile, so it won't fire. Soran, realizing what is about to happen, looks in horror. The missile explodes, but that is clearly not a big enough explosion for the movie executives of this film and so a plethora of "explosive" drums are placed strategically below the missile launcher. Suffice it to say, they also explode (in full dolby digital 5.1 surround) and Soran is dead.
