I am convinced that when they saw how the entire movie was coming off, they thought oh well, at this point even the most beautiful new sfx shot will not be enough to save this pile of mugatoshit, paste anything there and let's go home earlier.
Right, that's why they spent all that money on a new ending, because they wanted to cut their losses. They even spent for a miniature shoot of the locked down missile blowing up, just as insurance against the live-action explosion not working (was unnecessary, though.) I actually saw them blow that model up out back of ILM, and caught a piece of Veridian, but it literally dissolved to nothing in my hand.
