Chekhov’s gun has gone off, in a parellel sort of way. Lex and her delta rays = goofy alien idol in the post-prologue. What will transpire to make this seeming elimination of the Prime Directive as a consideration less than straightforward?
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.
