Re: George Lucas: Star Wars stood on the shoulders of Star Trek

George Lucas did more for the advancement of motion pictures than anyone since Lumiere brothers.

Is he a perfect filmmaker? No. He's made plenty of astronomical blunders.

Would Star Trek be lucky to have someone of his caliber involved with a project? Absolutely.

Obi-Wan feeling the death of Alderaan? Spock did it first ( in The Immunity Syndrome ).
Old tropes didn't originate with Star Trek.
