Cool ideas.

But it's not going to happen. The chat log is currently a hack that just outputs the text from the full-screen history. Having it do any more is not going to make the game more fun for 99.9% of the people who play.

Some of what you want will come in the form of ship logs.

The problem is the full screen text doesn't show the difference between crew messages and regular speech. Things that appear different when displayed at the bottom of the screen should still be distinguishable in the full screen (with color or tags, although color is lost when written to the chat log so maybe tags are better)
