You can find how fast you are going by mousing over the impulse throttle. But that is slightly inconvenient during gameplay (slightly useless in fact) and there is no way to tell how fast a target is going (as far as I know).

As for the 3rd point, forget a speed indicator... a simple button to "Match Target's Speed" would be very nice.
Thats a good idea. I can't remember exactly, but wasn't an option like that available in SFC? Anyway, I'd still like the speed indicator, can be helpful in knowing how to close gaps, or if i need to increase power to the engines to outrun an enemy, etc. Being a more informed player never hurt. But yea, I like that option also.
