But otherwise, a starship is basically a submarine: a sealed environment. So real issue there, in terms of keeping the crew alive.
A submarine has to keep many atmospheres of pressure out. A starship has to keep one atmosphere of pressure in. Very different design problems.
Still, basically, a sealed metal tube. For a society that has forcefields and gravity manipulation tech, it's pretty much a non issue.

It was cool. Can't we leave it at that?
Apparently not I can't recall any other shot in a Trek movie being dissected as much as this one has.
Sure, that other one where the ship is being constructed on the ground.

In the next film, it will have wheels and roll around on empty plains.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
