I wouldn't mind seeing pitting, scarring, and general fouling of the hull show up gradually over time. Like when you first get the ship, it's shinny and new looking, but as you play over the course of a few days or so, the hull starts to get more and more grungy and damaged looking, and the only way to get it looking new again is to repair it. Maybe go to Jupiter Station for a wash and a wax.
I also think that if your ship takes injuries, there should be corresponding visible damage to the ship until its repaired. If you had a couple of critical injuries, how cool would it be to see your ship limping along with a nacelle blown off? And a giant hole clear through the saucer section?
