It would be nice, yeah, if you could set a course to go to a system and it started a countdown as to how close you were. And you could run around do things in the interior in the meantime. Maximize time use efficiency.

That said, I view how it currently is as a matter of time compression. When cruising around in sector space, you're taking journeys that actually take a decent amount of time. Hopping to the bridge returns you to normal 1:1 time.
