Enterprise's self destruct acts like explosives are ringing the ship, which is a rather terrible design decision. Surely it'd just be warp core exploding. But the engine's are completely intact. It's the saucer section that explodes.
It's my impression that it's explosive, not a warp core breach like the one mentioned in TMP's director's edition. So yeah, it would kinda look like that.
Fair enough, having never watched the Director's edition of TMP I was unaware that they had that. I stand by my opinion of the design. Stocking a ship up with explosives seems a bit stupid when you've got a perfectly good warp core you can overload seems reckless. What if they got hit during a battle?
