GizMag - "An anonymous electrical and systems engineer going only by the moniker BTE-Dan has posted surprisingly detailed plans for a full-scale, functioning Starship Enterprise that he claims could be built in 20 years.

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.

at least someone's thinking big in space exploration for a change. ;-)
 
It'll take a society of enlightened individuals to build something on this scale. Not the idiots we have running the government right now.
 
Wow. This would be awesome. With the current state of the global economy tho, it looks unlikely. There are so many challenges any government would face trying to push this budget through
