Amusingly, some fans were saying Wrath of Khan
was a Star Wars-ripoff popcorn action flick back in 1982 ("Indiana Skywalker Meets the Son of Star Trek", Best of Trek #7
). And many fans were deeply disappointed in The Empire Strikes Back
as well in 1980 (see here
for one such example. Many old SW 'zines are scanned and online now expressing similar sentiment). Ultimately, only time will tell - although I for one know I'll enjoy Star Trek
and Into Darkness
for many years to come.
