Agreed. Functionality comes now. Style comes later. It doesn't matter what the ship looks like as long as it gets to Mars safely. Having it look like a fictional character can be a project for those with tons of money to waste on frivolous things. If it was a project asking to create a reasonable design that would reach Mars, then I would sign it. A starship that is not structurally sound, then I won't sign unless they have some way to protect the ship from breaking into pieces by meteorites and leaving the Earth. Only reasonable method to build this is in space and we don't have that technology yet.
