The actual reason given by Cryptic, was that a large percentage of the space battles seen in Trek have always been pretty much face to face and right-side up...

At the time the game was created, it was felt that this orientation was the most canon way to do it.

As a speculation, it most likely cut several months of development time off the final product by doing it this way...

They were on a very tight time table for completion.
