The bridge of a [[Federation]] [[starship]] is typically located at the top (most dorsal point) of the [[saucer section|primary hull]].  There is usually also an auxiliary bridge in the [[engineering section|secondary hull]], near the main engineering compartment; in [[Galaxy-class|''Galaxy''-class]] starships, the secondary bridge is known as the "battle bridge", as it is used to command the engineering section when it separates from the saucer section, a situation originally intended to only occur if combat was expected.  In practice, the auxiliary bridge of a Federation starship is seldom manned, even when the ship is in combat.

On multiple occasions<ref>TOS "Space Seed", "The Way to Eden"</ref>, intruders have seized control of Federation starships by gaining control of the auxiliary bridge.  The control systems on the auxiliary bridge can actually override the controls on the main bridge, even when the ship's commanding officers are in control of the main bridge.  The reason for this control priority situation is unknown.

The main bridge of an [[Imperial Star Destroyer]] is located high in the dorsal superstructure of the ship.  It is unclear what auxiliary control stations exist in Imperial starships, but when the main bridge of the [[Executor-class|Super Star Destroyer]] ''[[Executor]]'' was destroyed by a kamikaze attack,  the crew were unable to regain navigational control before the ship crashed into the [[Death Star]].<ref>''[[Star Wars: Return of the Jedi]]''</ref>
