Having everything pulsating is going to be very, very distracting. There's a reason ships don't have blinking red lights during battle-stations - it would be hard as hell to focus on what needs to be done.

If ANYTHING should blink, it should be you ship's health once it drops below 25 or 50%. I get popped in the Chel Grett because it is difficult to notice the health in your peripheral vision.
If you haven't seen it yet, it's done just right and isn't distracting. It only flashes red in a few parts and you probably won't notice unless you look right at it and aren't doing anything else. It's realistic as far as what we see on the shows.
