Overall, I think it looks great. My suggestion to make it look less like things are running together is to change the lighting of the room. To my eye, the entire room should be darker with certain sections lit up as if by small lights or spotlights. The foreground console and crewmen should be brighter and the areas that are further from the camera (to the left and to the right of the central engineering shaft and controls/displays) should be darker. The increased contrast would add a better sense of depth to the room.

Examples of what I'm talking about can be seen here and here in these stills from the film "Das Boot" and here, in this image from a video game.
