We known USS Enterprise D does not normal fire it weapons at 40,000 kilometers because Riker said to that Klingon Caption that I suggesting BOP fire 40,000 Kilometers from USS Enterprise D. Suggestion that if that BOP just 39,000 Kilometer from USS Enterprise D. USS Enterprise D had fight change destroying her.
We also know if USS Enterprise D main defectors dish at normal range it works it destroys both USS Enterprise D and the Borg Cube by the blast. Does anyone known with this kind information how power the main defector dish is as weapons.
So these suggestions that if USS Enterprise D fires the main defector dish at 39,000 Kilometers it destroy both the USS Enterprise D and the Borg Cube if it worked

Here is some info from Memory Alpha that may help:

USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D)

The USS Enterprise-D fires its deflector dish weapon

The crew of the USS Enterprise-D used the deflector to channel an extremely large amount of energy at a controlled rate - both as a weapon against a Borg cube in 2366 (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds", "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II") and as an energy source hoping to escape a Tyken's Rift in 2367. (TNG: "Night Terrors") Although the energy beam had a greater power output than the ship's complement of weapons, using the deflector for this purpose was extremely impractical and only ever used on two occasions for three reasons:
Channeling such a large amount of energy through the deflector made substantial drains on the ship's power systems, notably from the warp engines. This also meant that the beam could only be fired if the ship was traveling at sublight velocities.
The deflector dish would burn out following the energy beam discharge, requiring extensive repairs, possibly replacement of the deflector altogether.
The high levels of radiation produced by the energy beam require the evacuation of the entire forward half of the secondary hull and the lower three decks of the saucer section of a Galaxy-class starship.
Also in 2367, the Enterprise-D's deflector was modified to amplify and reflect the subspace frequencies produced by a cosmic string fragment to change the trajectory of a group of two-dimensional beings that threatened to destroy the ship. (TNG: "The Loss")

The deflector dish fires 5 beams of light

In 2368, the deflector dish was modified to send 5 beams of light for exactly 8.3 seconds into the clouded atmosphere of Penthara IV, together with a modified phaser blast. This would ionize dust particles in the planet's atmosphere, which would be converted into high-energy plasma. This plasma was then absorbed by the deflector shields of the Enterprise-D and redirected into space. Warp power had to be rerouted to the deflector dish to create enough energy for the massive undertaking. (TNG: "A Matter of Time")
In three different alternate timelines, the deflector was modified to emit an inverse tachyon pulse to scan beyond the subspace barrier, this being done to ascertain the workings of a anti-time eruption. The convergence of the three tachyon pulse at the same point in space in multiple timeframes caused a paradox which created the eruption in the first instance. (TNG: "All Good Things...")
