Though it may be tempting to scoff at such lofty ambition, the Build the Enterprise website (up all of one week) includes specifications, costs, mission plan and funding strategies, all suggesting that a serious amount of thought has gone into creating a real world counterpart to the icon spaceship of the TV and movie series, Star Trek. ..." more: http://www.gizmag.com/engineer-proposes-uss-enterprise/22532/
If it's going to function completely different from the fictional ship, it's going to look very different inside, so why make it an impractical shape? That alone won't secure the funding.

It'll take a society of enlightened individuals to build something on this scale. Not the idiots we have running the government right now.
