Actually, it's a rather monochromatic metaphor.

Other threads have rationalized the 1-g construction with answers ranging from anti-gravity devices to compensate for the lack of aerodynamics to the ship being built to handle greater loads at warp than it has to in 1-g. Personally, I'll accept those answers, but I'm not comfortable with them.
