Well, Purple/Green will be easy for any Drazi Starship Captains to
remember (although they might object strenuously), or any other fans of
Bablyon 5.

My actual 2c, FWIW: I think all of the suggestions out there have at
least one pairing which is non-obvious and really "the leftovers".  I
think this set of pairings has the three tightest couplings within the
pairings which are easy, and the one arbitrary one isn't inherently
confusing, just arbitrary.

IANASC, but I'd go with this one.
