Re: Revisiting the films...

^^^ If Star Wars was indeed the impetus for the studio to make ST into a feature film, we can be very glad that TPTB didn't force it into a ripoff copycat. They could have imagined all the things they thought made SW popular (kewl lazer battles, funny robots, etc) and stuck them into their Star Trek movie, just to capitalize.

There were many SW ripoffs at the time, trying to ride the bandwagon. Most failed terribly. It could have been so, so horrible for Star Trek.

And then I think about Star Trek 09...
