Default Why was there standing water on the Narada?

Why was there standing water on the Narada? Surely Nero would know that by walking in deep water it's a sure invitation to Athlete's Foot.

To make sure their shoes made a splashy sound?

That was an awful lot of water for waterboarding

Their boots protect their feet from the water. However, water can leak in. In which case, they would for sure get Athlete's Foot

Simple trick to give the place an uncomfortable and creepy touch. Nero is crazy so the place has to fit his character.
Now I won't say anything about how simple-minded this is, that the mob loves villains who twirl their mustaches respectively paint evil tattoos on their faces and that I yearn for ordinary Romulans on tidy warbirds ....

On this I agree 100% with Horatio's comments. Why would there be standing water on a spaceship? It's silly. Unless of course they had bad plumbing and leaky water pipes or something like that. It was simply a gimmick to make the interrogation area look/feel creepy.

I read somewhere that Romulans come from a wet, marshy planet. Maybe all the water on the ship has something to do with this?
