To be fair, stuff like this can often be rather ring- or pizza-shaped in Trek. (See the explosion of Praxis, for the most famous example…)
Planar shockwaves just look cool. And it’s not without precedent in the observable world.
It helps if there’s spinning before the explosion, though. And Lex isn’t so much exploding as glowing, so no disc for you! Or me either.
