Re: Bridge Ceiling / Dome
Did the ceiling / dome of the Enterprise D bridge serve a purpose? Or was it just decorative? Was it transparent? The crack in Generations kinda supports this. Just looking an explanation for it -- canon or otherwise.
It's purpose? To look out of.
Was it transparent? Yes. By virtue of the fact of being able to see through it.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
