In contemporary fighter aircraft, the pilot is strapped in.
Because they don't have inertial dampers or artificial gravity.
Inertial dampers would surely stop people staggering around the bridge whenever anyone hits the ship?

One of the things I really appreciated about Battlestar Galactica was that the bridge was so far inside the ship that even when Galactica was getting a massive pounding the bridge was operational. It never made sense to me to have the Enterprise bridge top and centre, like a nice big target.
They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
