    Oh, this isn't going to end well (with the haters)... the view screen IS a window :D I love it!

    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!

    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?

    A WINDOW?!?!

    "Captain! enemy ship approaching from starboard 100,000 km away"
    "On screen...oh wait. Turn ship and get us telescopes"

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

    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.

    Would be silly if it's a window. Or perhaps it is a viewscreen which happens to include part of the hull visible from that particular camera. Just throwing that out there! -- RR

    It may be a window, or it could be that they are showing the angle from the bridge which shows part of the saucer.

    If this is the case I always thought they should do that, same as showing the engines when showing a rear view (which they started doing in Voyager and Nemesis, unless they showed that view some other time which I havent noticed)

    Im hoping this is what they are doing, especially seeming it looked like the Kelvin had no such window at the front meaning how did they see outside

    Edit: Red_Ranger beat me to it =]

    In the "far" pic of the Kelvin, there appears to be a front dark slit flanked by small round shapes....perhaps a "windshield" with "portholes" on either side...
