Get closer to the K-M, create a stationary warp field which engulfs it while firing a remote detonated torpedo. Detonate the torpedo and teleport over some debris at the exact moment you engage the warp field making it appear you destroyed your own ship. Then warp away. Would that work?

What's your plan?

Tell the crew of the Maru to assemble in small groups for easier transport on the upper and lower deck,. Warp in to a point about 500 meters above her, clear out the top decks. Warp back out, appear right next to the furthest Kilngon ship, just long enough to blip on their sensors, then warp under the Maru, 500 meters below, clear out the bottom deck. High tail it home.

Think you can handle that, Mr. Sulu? We're all counting on you.

I was going to say that!
In more detail:
Hack into the computer controlling the simulation and program the enemies to self destruct.

Or get Q to help, I can't imagine he would object to cheating.

The Kobayashi Maru test is deigned to be unbeatable, it's supposed to test how you react in a no win situation. They only way to win is to cheat, because the vary act of winning is cheating.
