For many years I've been wondering over the lack of safety belts, considering the fact that they all seem to be flying around the bridge every time they get into a fight or flying into some anomaly.
And why are bridge officers like Kim, Tuvok, Worf and Yar standing while the Captain and the helmsman are seating?
The funny thing is that I had this discussion with another fan in my hometown a couple of days before this thread showed up.
It seems tactical and other stations other than helm/captain's chair are standing positions. Not sure the reason.
