They were flat-out ordered by the producers to destroy the D, in in small part because the D was designed for television aspect ratios (being about as tall as she was wide/long) rather than film.
Seriously, where do you guys get this stuff? Did Andy Probert say the ship was designed for TV aspect ratios of the time? Or are you working backwards from someone saying the E was long and flat to work better in widescreen or something?
