In the film Star Trek (2009), why was the Romulan mining ship's medical bay full of water up to shin depth?

    None of the ST series / movies are good at internal logic and sets making sense. The reboot movies make all prior attempts look perfectly planned out by the writers in comparison. After all, why does the new Enterprise use concrete flooring and beer vats in their engineering sections? If you're looking for scientific plausibility, you'll have to abandon the ST franchise. It's been revamped to capture the lowest common denominator audience and that's not us. – Jim2B May 22 '15 at 4:37

I don't have any facts to back up this answer, but looking at this question, I learned that Nero and the future Romulans spent 25 years on a Klingon prison planet. During that time, I would guess no one was maintaining the ship, and if it was stored on planet, condensation would build up and pool around.

  • It wasn't stored on a planet, it was kept in orbit around the prison world of Rura Penthe. – Valorum Oct 22 '16 at 23:25
