I like the idea, but as has already been said, the design's not very practical. It'd cost billions of pounds to build.
Fortunately, with warp drive being researched, that at least is a possibility.
An idea for keeping it practical and inspirational, build something like the Omega from Babylon 5. It has a rotating section that can produce centrifugal gravity and the design is robust.
Here's an image:
Obviously, take the weapons off it... and the fighters...
Make the habitation module longer.
Other than that, it's a very good design. I'd definitely be inspired to see it.
Obviously down-scale it so we can build it. The main challenge would be assembly. It'd have to be assembled in space but the components could be built on the ground. It'd take a while but you could construct it modularly like the ISS.
