In fact, OneBuck, that was the producers' intent, according to the Blu-Ray extras, but the budget didn't allow for them to make the truly amazing artist conception of what engineering would look like come to pass. So, in order to get the scale (because they REALLY wanted to show the massiveness and power of starships), they had to go the biggest industrial facility they could find (and the bean counters at Paramount would allow). Now, granted, Paramount was VERY generous with this production, compared to past Trek productions, but they really need to loosen up those purse strings more so they can make an awe-inspiring engineering deck. Heck, rent out that aircraft hanger they use on "Mythbusters", paint it chroma key green, and make movie magic!
