I didn't see standing water anywhere except around Pike. It could have been a safety measure to keep the dang slugs from escaping.

I just thought that since the entire ship is like a big drill to cut and grind into planets and asteroids, there is probably a lot of water needed to cool, lubricate and wash away debris. That with colliding with an exploding starship, there is a lot of damage and leaking going on.

Colliding with which starship? Weren't all the interrogation area scenes before the Jellyfish ran into it and 25 years after the Kelvin ran into it?

Hmm! Your right. A lot of time there to fix leaks.

But they weren't worried about that. They were just farting around the galaxy "waiting" for NuOldSpock to get there.

Nero: No time to fix leaks...waiting for Spock...
Ayel: wanna fix them leaks?
Nero: nope, waiting for Spock...
Ayel: what about now?
Nero: nope, waiting for Spock...
Ayel: now?
Nero: nope, waiting for Spock...LEAVE ME ALONE!!! I"M WAITING FOR SPOCK!!! Go fix your own dam leaks!!!!!!
Ayel: but the plumber died when the Kelvin ramed us, and...
Nero: No excuses!!! Waiting for Spock...Leave me alone...waiting for Spock...

Well, it certainly didn't seem to impede ships operations. Plus it could have been something they weren't worried about.

They were in prison for 25 years.

Not acording to what we saw in the movie. (deleted scenes dono't count)

As far as what actually occurred on screen, and Nero's dialogue, they were "waiting" for NuOldSpock's arrival. Nothing was ever said or shown that even remotely implied that they had been held in prison for 25 years. The only indication was the line about the 47 Klinigon "warbirds" that were destroyed and Nero's chewed up ear and scars on his head. But those could have come from anywhere. 25 years is a long time to be just "waiting". Who knows what kind of messes they got into? Only someone who already knew about the deleted scenes would even try to put the two together. Even then, it's a stretch.

"There's been an escape" ... "Klingon prison planet" ...

Nothing was ever said about an "escape". All NuUhura said was that there was a distress call from a Klingon prison planet and 47 "warbirds" were destroyed. Could have been anything. Nero could have run into the armada while going to the location he expected NuOldSpock to arrive. Nero's alleged imprisonment was never mentioned in the movie at all...anywhere.
