Re: George Lucas: Star Wars stood on the shoulders of Star Trek
I wouldn't say Star Wars owed much to Star Trek at all. It is based far more on westerns, samurai films and Flash Gordon serials.
And you think Star Trek wasn't?
Okay, maybe not Samurai films.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
