'cept blurs with white spots in the middle are kinda boring to watch in a movie, so chances are it'll remain the same.

Well DUH. You aren't going to see a star "stretch" and stay there. Light doesn't "stick" in place because you're going fast.

You can always put a video up on all the windows depicting hyperspace any way you like.
