Something to consider: the petition is not asking for NASA to start building the ship. It's asking for NASA to evaluate the technology proposed on the site.

You're right -- the chances of this ship ending up resembling any of the Enterprises are pretty much zero. But. If the petition succeeds, and NASA does examine the technology listed on the site, it could lead to a real ship with a more realistic configuration, that also looks appealing and inspirational.
