Starwalker cancelled?

Starwalker cancelled?

The reality space show Starwalker is no more according to an official of the show Robert Brand. The show was being made by Myrmidon Enterprises, the same people who are attempting to sue ZGeek for $42.5 million.

A post on facebook by Robert Brand states “All, I am now unemployed as Starwalker has cancelled! I am now looking for work so please advise. In fact I would be pleased to develop other space based shows and would like to hear from any Australian film maker interested in doing something. I have taken note of the suggestions and I believe that there are distinct …possibilities. I have kept my end of the bargain with this group!”

Although on the official blog, it states “Change… and not a moment too soon.” So who knows what the future holds.

The show has been mired in controversy after people raising questions about the logistics of the show were banned from the Facebook discussion group. Further to this, it was revealed that Jonathan Nolan sent out a fake press release to various blogs under the assumed identity of Dianne Taylor of Polkadot PR (read more). Further to this was claims by Myrmidon Enterprises that Prof Stephen Hawking was involved in the show. A claim that was later proven to be false.

    What update can you give us on the court case? I saw a fleeting mention that it was all over, but I haven’t seen anything else.

    Was it an explosion on the launchpad or a burn up on re-entry?

    Or was it simply a mercy killing in the design phase?

    So much fail in one place it’s lucky they didn’t create a black hole.

    Actually, maybe they could offer some advice to the scientists at the CERN Super Collider…

    No announcement yet. Things are very close to ending though.

    This entire saga has been like watching a drunken sailor reeling from pub to pub. It started off slightly scary, and now has become farcical.

    If it wasn’t for the personal attacks against Pirate I’d say the entire thing was amusing!

    I wonder if the SMS entrants have grounds for a class action?

    And I don’t seem to remember seeing a permit anywhere for the competition.

    Pirate got rid of the wank tanks years ago. There’s no suitable work around here that Nolan’s job skill set could possibly satisfy.

    According to Starwalker: It’s all a bad fraud! All entrants signed away their right to participate in a class action as part of the T & C.

    It’s almost like they knew!

    But what happened? They were such a decent bunch of honest, respectable, and trust worthy young men, it was a guaranteed success.

    Yeah but surely that wouldn’t hold up. Contract is signed and money handed over on the promise of it being legit. So it would have been signed under false premise. I can’t get you to sign a contract to buy my car and then have a clause you can’t sue me if I don’t hand over the car when in fact there never was a car to begin with.

    Oh, I’ve no idea. My only info comes from the above group.
    It just struck me as odd that a T & C would have a clause like that.
    I’m just wondering if a Facebook group can be sued for $100 Million?

    Um golden rule of suing people – don’t sue anyone who has no money.
