Tactical displays in Star Wars

Phil Laver, a designer, recently got in touch to let me know about a collection of Star Wars tactical displays that he's been working on here.

These are in tribute to the work undertaken by Dan O'Bannon (Alien) for  Star Wars (1977) and would look pretty cool on a t-shirt don't you think?
