It would help if Trek fans would ever get over being butthurt about the fact that Star Wars has been, by far, the premier space science fiction franchise in the theaters since 1977. The least successful of the six Star Wars films made almost 100 million dollars more worldwide than the most successful Star Trek movie.
As far as people buying tickets to the movies are concerned, for over thirty years Star Trek has been in second place - and for most of that time a distant second.
That's a really flawed way of looking at things.
Why don't you count the people who watched Star Trek on television?
Uh, because I'm talking about movies and said so,
Some people are upset about Star Trek
movies always being treated like they're second to Star Wars
movies. The reason that's so is because Star Trek
is second to Star Wars
in terms of box office. You got that?
