One thing to ponder: when the week's godlike alien kicks the Enterprise in the groin, and the bridge shakes enough to throw Lt. Leslie across the room and back twice, does the rest of the ship necessarily shake, too?
It's a design flaw in most Federation ships that the inertial dampening field doesn't extend very well to the bridge and the shipyards passed it off as an undocumented feature by explaining that it's a feedback mechanism so the bridge crew can tell when the ship is taking a beating better than a panel/display would tell them.

Actually, that might work!
