      I think in "Risks and Challenges" you have a typo, it says "Aso ewoks"... maybe "Also ewoks"? Not sure, English is not my native language. Otherwise this seems totally legit.

      Fortunately there are other planets.

      There isn't enough raw material on the planet to make a Death Star.

      Maybe if you raise £85,000,010 then you can afford to put a bar of ply wood over the exhaust vent.

      Why was this not the first thing on Kickstarter?!?!

    6. Mark Lawrence Creator on September 8, 2014

      Sure for £4500! Of course, unless we reach our £85,000,000 target your pledge will never be called in...

      Can I be Grand Moff Martin?

About

Death Star
Death Star

 We all want it. 

The US government has estimated the cost at $850,000,000,000,000,000 and it seems cheap at twice the price.

The plan here is to gather £85,000,000 on kickstarter and stake the lot on a horse race (or suitable gambling opportunity) that offers the required odds of a billion to one against. On winning we will have sufficient funds to complete the project.

Planned Stretch Goals will include:

i) Finishing the exterior hull.

ii) Providing a covering hatch for that thermal exhaust port. You know, the one that will blow up the entire Death Star if someone drops a small explosive charge down it.

iii) Sexy paint job.

iv) Flame decals.

Risks and challenges

There is a small risk that we won't win the gamble at odds of ten billion to one, but we plan to cross that bridge when we find it.

Otherwise the major challenges will be the rebel alliance. Aso ewoks.
