I like this a lot. I think there is a way of making it very attractive. Like a glowing cord on black that you just drag around or some other sleek thing instead of a sterile statistician's line with square dots. I would keep it looking very simple, and make it simple to test. I think ideally this could also accompany a little test model of the craft in a static space so you can test the movement live with your controls as you make adjustments.
I know there are more important game elements they are working on for single player, but eventually at some point it would be cool.
