The game has an autoleveling mechanism built in so I think the argument that players would get disoriented is pure BS.
Frankly it won't take anything at all away from the game to let space craft act like space craft.
Yes there has been a tall ships feeling to the flights of these ships but there are plenty of scenes in the TV series and the movies of ships going inverted to give an angle to fire, the Defiant spiraling like a fighter jet, the Enterprise E inverting to protect its dorsal shield while firing at the underside of a So'na ship, the Alt universe Galaxy going vertical to bring it's phaser lance to bear on a Klingon ship.
Now it might be said that there are no roll controls built in, but there are pitch controls and the artificial limit to pitch angles doesn't need to exist. A ship being able to pitch to inverted then autoleveling out it would not only not detract from the game, it would look damn cool.
