Reply to "MOVIES: What are you watching?"

One thing about Star Trek has been really bugging me since I saw it Friday. They obviously spent a lot of money on the film, with one glaring exception: the scenes in the Enterprise Engine Room. They did not bother to build a set, nor even greenscreen one for the actors to pretend in. Instead, they filmed in what looks to be a volumnous brewery or refinery (a very clean one, if it was a refinery.) Many films and tv shows do this to save money, as the never ending, twisting pipes could reasonably be anything or anywhere. But not a 23rd century starship. The cheapie set on the original tv show looked better than this!
And had they just done one scene, I could've seen the reason for skipping the set-building. But they do at least 4 or 5 scenes in this brewery or whatever it is! That really cheapened it for me, and I lost some respect for the endeavor.
