I honestly can see that tie bearing the mark of the crimson guard. I think there is some crest they wear maybe that can translat to the ship? check out the comic with the royal guard in it. I think its call crimson empire. that'd be a good source to look that idea up from.
hhehe your talking to the star wars super fan here. I grew up on the orginal 3 and was born in the same year it was released so I've been a star wars fan since the womb literaly. I've been reading most of the comic's for the last few years.
Ah, lucky you I was 10 when the Phantom Menace aired in the movies ... however, I think I was 5 when I saw the original trilogy for the first time. There were all three episodes aired at once and I watched them all. I wasn't into the expanded universe but I played through all Star Wars games that I can possibly image.
