For me, my ships typically have 5-8 systems including the engines. That means each of my ships can take a pretty good beating before it's totally useless. My larger ships can have upwards of 9 systems and shields, making them exceedingly tough, but for all that, they move like molasses.
My point is, there is already a system for tracking damage, so why complicate matters with an HP system? How would you calculate the HP for each ship? Would each ship have a beginning HP and then each system has an HP value attached to it? The system for damage tracking is already in place, so why change something that works?

As if we care. More explosives!
