Welcome aboard the Coralskipper, your hostess shall soon be serving a small tasteless snack.
About this creation
After reading the NJO series, I decided to build my favorite ship from the books out of Lego. My decision? The "yorik-et" coralskipper is an organic space-superiority fighter, shaped from living coral and fitted with a single, volcano-like cannon that fires molten rock. Large numbers of these ships were used as cannon fodder in the name of taking over the galaxy before they were stopped...lousy Galactic Alliance.

Dovin basal alert!
Organic greebling, with little claw accesories. Makes the skip seem more alive. Which it is. No, I'm not repeating myself.
Poor Yuzhaan Vong pilot, crammed into a cockpit with only a cognition hood for company.
The "guts" of the ship... literally!
Underside. I built this ship similarly to the Jedi Starfighter, using the same kind of base design.
Nice, but from the front it looks like a painted jedi starfighter strapped to a large cannon, and the cognition hood is weird. Also, it could use a better cockpit if you have one. Great job, it actually looks like it could be mistaken for an asteroid, and from what little of the New Jedi Order stuff I've read, it sounds like they looked almost just like them. I've got a couple of Coralskippers too.
