Energy of the Tunguska event was at the very least 10 Petajoules (10,000,000,000,000,000 Joules). According to a few sources, the Ent D's shields operated at a power of around 4 Gigawatts (4,000,000,000 Joules/sec). Even on a huge scale, the energy flux upon the shields from such an impact would be enormous, way beyond the Enterprise's capacity.
