Re: Did Star Wars cash in on Star Trek?

^Well, yes, but it was definitely a huge hit in syndication by the time Star Wars went into production. Paramount had already spent a few years trying to bring ST back as either a motion picture or the anchor series of a Paramount TV network (just as Voyager later was) since before SW came out. SW's success just increased the scope and budget of the project.
