For it to be a window, Kirk would actually have to look into the bridge off axis. Remember in the TOS, the bridge is off axis from the turbo lift. This puts the view screen roughly 30 degrees towards starboard. The screen would have to be just that, a view screen. Otherwise the ship would always be traveling in a 30 degrees arc.
