I like to think the 'show' Galaxy Quest was the inspiration for Lucas and the sci-fi revolution.
Doesn't work. According to the film's backstory, Galaxy Quest ran from 1979-1982. It probably took several years to accumulate enduring popularity in syndication, like Trek did.

However, according to the GQ Wiki, the show was made using sets and props left over from an earlier space movie as a money-saving move. So one has to wonder what that earlier movie was. I wonder if that's a nod toward the (inaccurate) perception that Battlestar Galactica -- which debuted in 1978 -- was just a copy of Star Wars. Maybe that earlier movie was what took the place of SW in the GQ universe. But then, what inspired that movie?
