I'm a handyman and accidentally found "tile spacers". They come in all sizes and some great shapes and I use them to identify units that have fired and such in many games. They are cheap and you get a bunch in the smallest of packs. I use the smaller thin "X"s and put them on stacs to note fired, and I'm sure you could find another shape or color to note turned.

Oh interesting! I wonder if they are big enough and sturdy enough to separate counters in a stack with them?

I haven't tried this myself yet (I'm still setting up the VTT for my first Starfire game in 20 years), but if you applied the movement notation from Nexus 2 p. 29 where it described simultaneous rather than pulsed movement for 1st Ed and used it to document movement for all of the ships in a battle (irregardless of the movement variant being used), that would give you specific records of when a ship last turned.
