I'm pretty sure the Enterprise-D, if the shields were so poor (kinda like in this game! HINT HINT CRYPTIC), the crushing of the ship would destroy it faster than the fuel reserves would detonate.

Also, the warp reactor itself doesn't contain most of the antimatter, it is merely a fancy shell around deuterium and antimatter colliding through a dilithium refining crystal. The antimatter pods on the lowest decks of the ship (deck 42, exactly) would be the ones to lose electromagnetic containment and react with the normal matter that comprises most of the ship.
