Well I believe when a starship goes on a five year mission with 400+ crewmen you have to have enough fresh water for them to survive on.

As I said in another thread, I don't think it's actually main engineering. Theres no engineers.

I reckon it's either scottys place on the ice planet, or if it is on the ship, some sort of water treatment/recycling center. If it's the latter, it would explain the lack of officers and manual valves.

possible spoilers if trek movie is right..........

when kirk and scotty beam back to the ship, why would they beam to main engineering where they'll be arrested straight away. Makes more sence to go to a less populated section of the ship.

I was thinking about that. If it takes place after Kirk was sent off the ship, he may be trying to sneak back on to a place not usually staffed.

Some of the over reactions are funny

Seriously, it's a Star Trek movie, it's not supposed to make complete sense.
