Bridges positioned like that tend to be pretty common in sci-fi ship designs. It likely links to modern ships, where the bridge is typically placed high up to afford a great degree of visibility of the surrounding water.
Obviously in sci-fi, the capability of viewscreen technology means this isn't as necessary. Though we did see in the new Star Trek movie that the view screens were overlay displays on regular windows. I guess it's just a matter of whatever the designer feels like.
