* ''Franchise/StarTrek'': The windows of the various starships, being made of {{Unobtanium}} rather than plain old glass, doubles as its big board, and is most often used as a video conferencing device. The Captain ordering his communications officer to put an incoming message "on screen" has pretty much happened at least OncePerEpisode in most episodes.

The Captain ordering his communications officer to put an incoming message "on screen" has pretty much happened at least OncePerEpisode in most episodes. Though in most cases, the "window" is actually a viewscreen; it wasn't until the [[Film/StarTrek 2009 reboot]] that the bridge gained actual windows onto which the viewscreen functions were projected.
** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' also introduced the large systems monitor display in Main Engineering, which ostensibly showed the current status of the ship's systems. (Usually it was just the default fixed, backlit cutaway image of the ''Enterprise''-D, with the occasional overlaid or backlit effect; on rare occasions, it would be used to display other images as though it were a regular viewscreen.) There was also its companion piece, the "[[FanNickname pool table]]", which had a large surface display on each end, and with which the crew interacted much more. The wall monitor would appear on other starships in the franchise, usually at the rear of the bridge, opposite the viewscreen.
