I'm currently rolling upa thri-kreen swashbuckler for a game here on the boards. Now I'm not quite sure if stuff like BAB and saves and such for the swashbuckler stacks with the thri-kreen starting package. I think it does, but I'm not 100% sure.

Yes they do. Things gained from classes are added to what you gain from being a member of your race.

For monsters with only 1 HD you remove things like BAB and saves (except for racial bonuses) and replace them with your first class HD.

For monsters with more than 1 HD you add things like BAB and saves gained from class levels to the things gained from your racial HD.

Just don't forget that thri kreen have at least a +1 level adjustment (I can't recall exactly what it is) so it'll count effectively as at least a level 4 character when you take your first level of Swash.
Plus you don't get the multiplied amount of skills, and such.
