So I was wrong then... the Galaxy's armor couldn't withstand disruptor shots, but rather budgetary problems prevented cool explosions from happening...?
To be fair, things were different in TOS narratively: if a shot, attack, or natural disaster could breach the shields, then the ship would be doomed. This is why Kirk would sweat whenever the shields were knocked down.

So the other way to bypass budgetary problems was to threaten to blow up the whole ship entirely
