I remember hearing that originally all battles were going to be conducted from the battle bridge after saucer separation but it slowed down the pace of the episode too much.

Also, sometimes you'd just be flying through space and start getting pelted by disruptors and so have to conduct things from the main bridge.

One thought that comes to mind: since we insist on putting the command center of the ship in the most vulnerable spot, wouldn't it make sense to have a back up command crew manning the battle bridge at all times or at least at yellow alert in the event of a can-opener shot a la ENT: Twilight?

Porthos is not amused.
