That "preponderance of designs based upon radial symmetry" is probably both a limitation and an advantage, in that radial symmetry is almost certainly the most functional (and economic) enclosure for a drive which is itself radially symmetrical (i.e. an inertial drive which also provides inertial shielding). That would especially apply to space-going or inter-stellar craft. Exceptions - like triangles etc. - could be intended purely for planetary (atmospheric) work, and might still be powered in the same way. Cheers Ray D BTW the comment by Kandinsky mentions Ian M Banks' novels, where "money is a sign of poverty" - i.e. that citizens of the Culture, with almost infinite resources, would have no need or desire for "wealth". As `The Professor' hinted, that could indeed be a clue to the (ET and UFO) behaviour we observe. Listen to 'Strange Days...
