Re: Where are those big windows on the Enterprise model on the set?

My question is, are the windows in the center (the larger ones in front of NCC-1701-D) supposed to be 10 Forward? If they are, 10 Forward was closed at the time.
First of all, these are windows according to the ship's designer Andrew Probert. Check out Greg Tyler's interview and fast forward to Question 25, Andrew Probert even illustrated this area with crew members behind those windows.

Second, it was not supposed to be Ten Forward by the production designers that took over after Andrew Probert had left the TNG production, but it's the only possible location for Ten Forward unless you want to double the size of the ship.

This is addressed in Question 23 of the aforementioned interview and has recently been discussed again here at the BBS:
