But it IS a UFO - Unidentified Flattened Object!

As for windows, I doubt that most spacecraft will have them.  Windows leak, as they have to have some type of seal around them; they are prone to damage from space debris; and cameras/viewscreens can be mounted to show any direction from any place in the ship.

Ok, an escape pod it is.  That makes it an IFO - Identified Flying Object!  I assume the circular portion in the center of  the windowed side is the entry hatch, and that side will be against the ship?

OK, that makes more sense.  If they were windows, an escape pod would likely have limited fuel reserves, and wouldn't want to waste it on that much interior lighting.  On the other hand, that much light would make it easier to find!  But engines would be essential, especially if it was intended as a lifeboat, capable of landing on a planet, rather than just floating in space around until someone found it. 

Are you going to use it as part of a ship, or in disaster scenes?  If the latter, you might want to add antennae and strobe lights.  The antennae would probably be hidden, and the lights off, while attached to a ship.  After deployment it would likely be broadcasting on every band available to attract rescuers.

Nice design.  I like it!

for now just on ship, dissasters will wait
i made the engines ços i think this way it is easier to change course, simply just turn portion of engine ring and you will turn or you could yous engines in front to make it quicker
and about antena. i don't know where to place them for now they are hidden beneath central part of front shield, but if you have any idea post quick sketch and i will update it if i like it
