I've never heard of mod_rewrite, and I've heard of .htaccess but I have no idea what it is. I would need to do research before I'd even understand this idea.

Or, better yet, I know there are ways to use a php file to dynamically select the image that gets displayed... say that you add one field to each user's profile where they select which ship they'd like to see, and then point the layout at a php script for displaying the pic they'd chosen?
That sounds exactly the same difficulty as the idea I posted, so I'll try mine first. Thanks for the advice, though.
