For starters, I have a hard time digesting the idea that intelligent life forms have created a space ship as large as Mercury. Even then, thermal conditions that close to the sun would be problematic for any life forms to exist. If they could, that raises the number of stars that could harbor intelligent life to about 100% of them, and there is no point even thinking about "intelligent life" if it is so radically different from anything we can imagine in the context of known chemistry.

Where would they mine the building materials for such a space ship? Even a shell that size would require the equivalent of 75-trillion square feet of aluminum foil.

That's not part of the ship that is the force field - an electromagnetically induced binary flux capacitor with ocillating quantum ... well you get the idea
