One comment and one bug report.
I (as others have found from looking at the comments) find the rate of degradation on the ships system too high. I understand the main gameplay loop is busy work on the ship but by the time personally things break too frequently. By the time I've got everything working I will set a course and within seconds of starting say the piloting minigame I get the red triangle and have to go through the ship and fix everything again. For me there is not enough down time to look through the star system/plan next moves/play the mini game. I am not far into the game either so imagine this only becomes a bigger problem as ship gets more working parts.
A fix could be that the warning signs don't flash whatever needs fixing until it is in more urgent need of repair. I understand that I can just ignore the red triangle for a bit but I hate it flashing so have to get rid of it immediately. I am sure I am not the only one.
Bug I experienced. I was in the rear end of the ship (no upgrades - picked the bigger slower ship) when something broke rendering me unable to open the doors, basically soft locking me. Reloading the game returned me to cockpit so no great harm done.
