the vocal majority of fans demanded 4:3
There were just as many people clamoring for a 16x9 version.

Because they had a close to perfect CGI recreation of the Enterprise-D, already used in "Farpoint" they could have just used to overcome the deficiency of the Starbase 74 entering Enterprise-D VFX shot.
The mandate was to use CGI only when necessary elements were missing.

Plus, as you've no doubt read, the show was filmed as 4x3...in that the cropped image area was often filled with empty space and/or filming equipment. Just because they filmed extra space, doesn't make it usable.

15 years ago, consumers had to fight ignorance and stop studios from cropping 16x9/scope movies to 4x3. Now we have to fight ignorance on cropping 4x3 to 16x9.
Exactly this.
