On an unrelated note: At this point, I'm fine with bridge windows. I think it's unnecessary, but it's a cool gimmick for the directors to use in fancy shots. And the glass here (and on the Discovery) is noticeably thick enough to grant real protection (at least similar to the "regular" outer hull), compared to the lauchably thin window glass in ST09. So overall - why not? I just really don't like this negative space here. Hell, I could even live with that if it were, say, only one level tall and only a small portion of the front dome. But having the entire(!) front dome be this useless design element - is just really annoying.
