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

Back on the topic, during the initial release of Star Wars George Lucas said in an interview that he put the word "Star" in the title as an insurance policy, as it would grab the attention of science fiction fans and prevent the movie from being a flop. I thought that was a clear reference to Star Trek fans.
