The windows on the nu1701 are now only giant because they made the ship to be 300m and only later scaled it to 725m as stated in this thread many times.
I understand that. But it's stupid, sloppy, and I reject it. If they wanted to make the ship twice as big, they should have made more of an effort to design a bigger ship. This isn't a weekly TV series with a limited budget and a production staff that really doesn't care -- it's a 100 million dollar movie (with a staff that claims they're making something "real" that "could actually happen in our future", but apparently really doesn't care either).
