Thanks Michael, a nice article per se.

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.

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.
