If time really ran backward in that universe, then thought and perception would run backward too, and its inhabitants would perceive everything running forward normally. It would only seem backward if an observer from our universe watched it, like seeing a tape run in reverse. The whole scenario is self-contradictory.
Not to mention having four unrelated types of reversal -- time reversal (people aging backward), functional reversal (controls work in reverse), directional reversal (the ship flies backward), and color
reversal (black stars on white space). How could any of those share a common cause?
