During this sector-map-on-bridge-fly an interruption by enemies would be really interesting.
The enemies occur randomly, a BO will message the appearance "Captain, a borgcube on intercept course".
The RedAlert sounds and the lights will be adjusted. Then you have a random-amount of time to react, set a new course, attack, sidestep,...) If you are out of random-time you have to fight, if you are in time you can flee.
A little proper movie on the screen would be cool.
