Warp cores don't breach in this universe unless you really want them to. Even with the torpedoes: Scotty wasn't worried about them causing a warp core breach so much as the torpedoes affecting the containment field and allowing the reactor to irradiate the entire crew.
Fuck Abrams!

How dare he rape my childhood by not making warp cores out of tissue paper?!?


In TOS, it seemed that the danger was always the hull breaking apart at high speed or the nacelles blowing off the pylons, or vague mentions of "blowing up" in general.

So their core could take a fair beating apparently, so it's just the 24th century lava lamps that were so fragile. I'm surprised it was safe to sneeze near the things.
A lost scene from TNG: Ensign Crusher Sneezes as he walks past engineering; containment alarm sounds; computer starts countdown to warp core breech; blast door begins to drop; Geordi rolls under at the last second.

Geordi: Damn it, that's the third time today.
