As for the scorches and whatnot, I felt like the movie was depicting a more haggard Starfleet. With the technology of the time it'd be pretty easy to routinly redo the paintjobs on shuttlecraft. And doing so fits the model of discipline numerous navies have employed over time. However this Starfleet, presumably as a result of the changes after the Narada's arrival, is having to be practical.

Fixed for accuracy ;)

There's no reason the water pumps couldn't have been water pumps. The ship is big and has a big crew. It's going to need to keep them all supplied with water.

Expecially if there are no replicators on board.

the women are mighty fine.
They look like Phyllis Diller,
