You know, I think we can see part of the saucer right outside. I see an NCC. So, it's a window.

I like to know why they decided to go that route. It might be very, very cool if they can throw all kind of other images up there, like I see the HUD is, so then you get a window and a Viewscreen.

OMG, you're right - it is a window!

On TOS, to me at least, it was so clearly not a window.

Can anyone post/attach the other pics - just for the sake of furthering the discussion?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Empire Magazine pics!

Well, i suppose a window in lieu of a viewscreen qualifies as "older tech".

I guess the question is - is it transparent aluminum or a force field?

Well, I think it's a window with capability to show images as well.

Re: Empire Magazine pics!

It's the freakin 23rd century guys. If they have warp drive and transporter technology, I think it's also safe to assume they have the technology to switch a clear window into a viewscreen whenever they want. lol

Apparently that's "relevant" to the plot... he probably tears his gold one.
