cyan does look good, but the ship all kind of fades into a monotone.
red makes more of the details pop.
if you're messing with it anyway, turn-signal amber might be nice.
but not if they blink, too.
This caught me off guard and I lost it.
However, I second experimentation with amber. And perhaps a red-purple. Or a gradient between colors ... white hot, fading to a bluish, fading to red?
