I don't know, I think that's pretty fair. That's how I felt when they blew up the D and replaced it with the E - only I suppose in that case it was more like a stomach stapling.
Hey, if you want to go that far: if we think of the ship as a character (and rightfully so, as we all do) and then personify it, does that mean the Enterprise-D willingly decapitated herself to escape her exploding body?
...am I going just a wee bit too
far with this?
