Well I would MUCH rather have one of my less-than-favorite color assignment schemes used for the Xeno colors than have the issue left up in the air.  If Josh AND the Klingon contingent like the same scheme, I could change my vote as well.  :-)

IF both Cyan and Clear are used, then it becomes even more important to use the initals of the powers instead of the colors when recording games.  Use LA for a Large Attack ship instead of LR, Large Red, or LO, Large Orange.
