actually, the shield projectors for the ISD's we're on top of these domes, they look like a ring of spikes. the dome structure is sensors only, but the projectors are mounted on top of these domes.

as for ISD's being useless, they are actually close to perfect for what they are intended, which is long-range fleet engagements and planetary bombardments. they have little to no close range anti-capital ship weaponry, and are not meant to operate alone. they do field more firepower than similarly sized mon cals, and as a rule, will usually win a one on one engagement. (obviously we're talking about comparable ships, not an imperator-1 vs. an mc-90). The ISD's were able to project most of their shield cover from the arrays on the sensor domes, but since the SSD's used the same domes and had much much more surface area to cover, their bridge domes ONLY projected shields for the top aft section. there were many other domes over the rest of the hull protecting the rest of the ship. it could also be argued that these domes were also sensor domes to boost sensor power to overcome the tremendous interference from the enormous power generation needs of SSD's.

as for the bridge thing, all star destroyers, and really almost every capital ship has 2 bridges, the flag, or main bridge (the tower in the case of sd's), and a auxiliary bridge for emergency use. in the case of star destroyers, this was usually located deep in the hull underneath the main bridge tower. in the case of ssd's, some sources say there were 2 aux. bridges, but most of them maintain that one was midship, again, many decks below the surface.

it just so happens that most Star destroyer captains loved throwing wild parties on the flag bridge during combat :-p

what better time for merriment and social drinking than when blasting things in to tiny pieces?
