Viewing halls (lore)
All spaceships have a viewing platform somewhere in their design. On larger ships it is a great hall, complete with equipment for viewing stars. On small frigates, however, it might only be a small room with a single window and a vidscreen to call up information on.
One on a ship that carried Jamyl I was in between, with only a few metal chairs and small backless benches, decorated with gold religious icons, and a curved wall of polycarb glass that looked out into space.
