I appreciate the sentiment of trying to make it a little clearer when a subsystem is down, aside from the power dropping to zero. This is a little distracting though, and doesn't help much to show exactly what's down. Using the ship status display makes a lot of sense, and is a nice nod to canon. Like in TWoK when they check the damage from Khan's attack. Flash the nacelles red to show engines offline, flash around wherever that ship's main weapons are for that, flash the shield facings to show shields offline. Aux is a little tricky since that doesn't really exist anywhere specific. Maybe flash the area around the bridge? Something like that anyway.
