It's a great fighter on its own though. It's exotic enough to look like a villain ship without looking totally alien. It's dark and menacing and can become sleek or grow wide to look more imposing. The main body isn't even that big, so the wings take up the bulk and give it more of a threatening look (the wings have big thrusters at their bases so it even works better as a sci-fi ship than most). I could see it being used by the CIS if nothing else. We should talk Dave Filoni into using it on the show, tell him it's flown by Plo Koon.
