I admit to being confused as to why a starship engine room from the year 2258 would need WATER tanks...
I just thought it was part of the reactor coolant system myself (maybe it's still a few years before plasma coolant is used).
Personally, I didn't mind the engineering set--although I do think there should have been a central control room for Scotty to work in rather than have him running all over the place. But now that I think about it, there did seem to be more a "cohesive look" between the Kelvin
's bridge and its lower levels. On the Enterprise
, not so much, but that may have been a lighting issue perhaps (maybe the engine room needed more lens-flare)...
