What are the rings for?

Artificial gravity. When you don't have gravplating you have to make grav-decks (Battletech is nefarious for this)which are recessed into the ship's core or these grav-sections.

What's nefarious about it?  It's realistic.   The only way to generate "gravity" in space (in real life, anyway)  is building decks to use centripetal force as a substitute for gravity.

It's the fact that they do it exclusively... nothing bad about it.

Fragile design for combat. I don't really believe in the gravity generating ring structure, since there are ways of overcoming the centrifugal generation in the study of the unified field theory.

Have you ever tried to rotate a bucket of water around your head?

Centrifugal forces actually do work

Make your mind already, you believe in centrifugal gravity or don't believe in it?)) Or you didn't believe in it in 2012 but do believe now?

What is there to "believe" in?  Centripetal force is a scientific fact.   That's like saying you don't "believe" in angular momentum.

Actually, due to current scientific progress, it's still a far ways off.

I love the design! The rings remind me of Babylon 5.

I always thought what would happen if you combine Battlestar Galactica with Zephyr transport, this is the answer, now I am thinking about making similar design

Now that is a smexy starship! Are the rings a rotating crew section or a propulsion system for an Alcubierre type warp drive?
