In the actual Star Trek the ships rarely would do some of the 3D maneuvers you guys are talking about. There's this thing is space that Star Trek was actually very accurate with displaying called Torsional Stress.
The whole thing of Inertial Dampeners were meant to counter the internal effects of torsional stress, but there is not much that would prevent the torsion from ripping your ship in half, and most of the ships in the Star Trek universe are built with pylons and parts going off in every direction.
