It always looked like the kind of digital D-pad found on 80's and 90's game console controllers to me.

Which is, of course, an even more ridiculous way to fly a giant spaceship than Riker's joystick from Insurrection!
Yes, it is rather silly. You'd need at least two joysticks to effectively fly a ship. One for rotation, and another for translation.
STAR TREK: 1964-1965, 1966-1969, Jan. 21-23 1972, 1979-2001, 2003-2005, 2009-?
