The Bridge of the USS Enterprise

Just saw Star Trek on Blu Ray. Unbelievably fantastic but one camera move really gave me pause. At one point the camera pans out from the bridge of the USS Enterprise, through the viewscreen/window and over the front bow of the ship. I'm no military strategist, but that would be the last place where you would place the command/nerve center of your starship. Worse still is having a well lit window letting everyone look in. Hopefully for the next movie they can invent some form of CIC. Take advantage of the reboot.
