A viewport, or viewing port or simply window, is a transparent medium used to see through a wall so as to view the outside of a starship or building.

While on board the Gideons' mock-up of the USS Enterprise, James T. Kirk, who believed he was on the real Enterprise, lead lead Odona to a viewing port, explaining to her that through it, they will be able to see outside.

Major Kira Nerys told Mullibok a story from her childhood while treating him on Jerrado. The story was about a huge ugly tree in front of her window. It was so huge and ugly even the birds won't sit on it and he derailed the sun from falling into the window. (DS9: "Progress")
When Derran Tal caught Harry Kim staring out the window of her quarters on board the Varro generational ship, she told him "if you're planning on leaving through the viewport, you might want to get dressed. The interstellar vacuum might get a little chilly." (VOY: "The Disease")
Some windows featured colored glass for artistic purposes. In 1986, Feinberg's Loan and Pawn had a stained glass window out front featuring a bowl of fruit. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) Stained glass windows were often found in religious settings. St. Mary's Church had stained glass windows. (VOY: "Spirit Folk")
