It seems rather... unoptimum and not very practical. Very sci-fi though. What are the crescent shaped outriggers for?

The basis for such shape is lifting body concept, the crescents are in such way to provide maximum aerodynamics as forward swept wing provides greater performance in lifting body module. They are also fuel tanks.
