I think that most of us don't want to fight space battles from the bridge, Bridge Commander was a pretty good game but STO and BC are too different to for STO to be played that way.
But traveling across sector space from the Bridge should be in this game. Omega Glory's idea is good, but I think added to that we should still have a sector space map, instead of being 3D and flying around like in space combat mode your ship and every ship around you are represented by 2D dots traveling along on a 2D map accessible by the helmsman from the Bridge. That way you could travel by selecting the system you want to fly to, or by just clicking on any random empty area of space to fly there, and then walk around your ship untill you get there. That way you could visit other players ships by flying up to them and beaming aboard like you do now. And if Cryptic ever gives us open PVP when an enemy player gets within weapons range they can fire on another player and knock them out of warp and then they enter space combat mode.
