I've done a little one using Ultimate Paint. Photobucket is down right now, so I'll upload it in the morning. As for actually using MS Paint to do lights, only if you're a glutton for self-punishment with a lot of time on your hands! You really need an airbrush feature. Ultimate Paint has a simple round airbrush which works for most. I know you can make oval brushes in Photoshop and rotate the oval. For directional lighting like on the saucer of the Enterprise in the motion pictures I select a triangle, airbrush the lighting, then I usually deselect the area I've masked and lay down a light blast just to soften the sharp edges.

I gotta ask, BlueEagle, are you looking for help with a ships self-illumination (lights) or shadowing to suggest natural lighting and depth?

And yeah, what Canis said about trying to add any sort of depth and lighting in MSPaint. You might want to consider upgrading to Gimp, it will give you some excellent results. Plus you can't beat the price (free).
