I like the way this is developing.
The theme of a derelict spacecraft is great. I don´t see a reason to limit the subject to Star Wars, scratchbuilding or kit use only. Choosing a specific kit for all to build limits too much. For those who see this as a great possibility for scratchbuilding (like myself) could do so and those who like to build something OTB, it works in any case.
I like the "campaign" approach with a ribbon, I don´t think prizes should be involved. We are not here to compete each other but to learn and inspire ourselves in the process. The best way to learn is to see what kind of ideas other people develop from the same specs.
I think I start sketching my Dork-class Balloowa-Nimir fighter equipped with a Trendath and a load of Waszugal warp torpedoes crashed somewhere in the Amaromra System...
