I wonder if it was supposed to be this:

No, I think that idea came entirely from Vonda McIntyre's imagination and had nothing to do with the filmmakers' plans. It was probably just supposed to be "Okay, do we have a spare ship we can stick in the background of this shot? Any old thing will do, since hardly anyone will get a decent look at it."

I mean, didn't the same shot have a spacedock shuttle whose nacelles were made from disposable razor handles?
Pretty sure that is the one passing over the dish in drydock in TMP, not in the sequels.
