It looks great so far, adds a lot to the immersion and I don't find it too distracting.
What I would like to see from it however is a system for marking ships as 'important'. What this means is Important ships will always show crew dialogue over unimportant ones regardless of the zoom level and have a lower 'cooldown' on the dialogue frequency.
Important ships have a portrait of the ship's captain, and the name of the ship below the portrait. (or at-least the name part)
This way I can look anywhere on the battlefield and know the status of my main battleship, for example. Also seeing a captain's perspective on the events with it's own dialogue would be a nice bonus for immersion and avoiding repetitive dialogue.
