Never knew the name but I had heard of there being some kind of layer that keeps things from sticking to the glass. The one I heard about I think is a DARPA project for the Navy and its submarine periscopes.

One of the nasty pit-traps of Trekkiedom.
Something gets mentioned and suddenly everything must be linked to that mentioning, even if it makes the worst possible sense.

Yes, aluminum is a crappy metal alloy for a starship.
Previously in sci-fi fiction this used to be called transpari-steel (or some variation thereof). But Trekkies being Trekkies... if it's see through then it's transparent aluminum! All because of a movie reference.

The all important canon must be serviced.

Of course, 23d Century tech probably means that space dust is ionized away before it has a chance to settle onto the window, or (insert technobabble).

(But what about space bug spatter?)
Navigational Deflectors. The same thing that keeps random particles from turning into bullets while travelling at more than the speed of light

a.k.a. Hollywood magic
