Yeah, I always thought some of that went overboard. Eight crewmen to lift grates and carry them out of the way before loading a torpedo?
Right. I understand that Meyer wanted to show the ship gearing up for battle (and also foreshadow Spock's death). But having such a thing happen on a 23rd century ship seems far-fetched. I also never liked the idea of cramped submarine quarters for senior officers. Kirk's cabin in TUC looked smaller than my college dorm rooms.

This never bothered me since we were already told that the ship's main systems were offline.

Besides its no more silly than the fact that TOS showed that the Enterprise had "phaser gun crews" that had to manually fire the phasers after receiving verbal orders from the bridge.
