I just took that as a reason that the ship was so "dirty" and ships systems seemingly strung together. Albeit the ship was originally a mining ship and we can't really count the ship being Borg-enhanced as in the pre-story in the prime universe.
Which gets back to the fact that how could the movie have properly explained a mining vessel being converted into a poorly maintained weapon of war and still kick most of Star Fleet's butt? I could have understood a better transition to the movie version if Nero had just "taken" an advanced Romulian ship while he was in the prime universe.
I'll post in another thread for anyones reply!
