Yes of course.
What I meant is the placement of one or two stations at the fore of the bridge regardless of function. There seemed to be a move to a single fore station in later ship designs as mentioned, with a couple exceptions (Sovereign, Prometheus) bucking the trend.
Having Ops up front never made too much sense to me... Ops is meant to feed data about the ship and sensors to the CO and other officers, they shouldn't need a prime slot to look out the window IMO.
Also, 40cm? I trip over toys that big when cleaning up after my daughter.
