How about this for contrast (i.e., "easier to find against a background of green vegetation")?

A. John Deere green and yellow with black trim, or

So, you're trying to say that an advanced alien race has the technology and skill to build a sleek looking ship like this, an the best they can do with the color wheel is PURPLE?
This I can see. Even this, but we're only a step away from Barney.

However...

If it was built by the inhabitants of The Planet of New Orleans, those colors would be PURPLE, YELLOW, and GREEN, and it would have a big GOLD Fleur du Lei on the fins...

The galley and the mess hall would have the pungent smell of GARLIC, PORK FAT, and CAYENNE all the time, and the crew would have a laid-back approach to everything...
