I don't really remember what I thought of Star Wars when it first came out. I don't think it really stood out in my mind as more than just one of the various sci-fi properties I was interested in. The only one of those properties that stood above the rest in my mind was ST.

Of course, for me, SW was a novel first, or maybe a comic, since we had that oversized Marvel special that adapted the first third (?) of the film. I didn't see the movie until some months later.
I'd read the first three issues of the Marvel comic before I saw the movie . . .

Re: Did Star Wars cash in on Star Trek?

Yeah, when I saw Star Wars back in 77, all I thought was, "That was a cool movie. I hope there's another one". My best friend and I were pretty excited beforehand, devouring every scrap of information we could find in the limited genre resources of the day. The only thing that bothered us was the name "Luke Skywalker", as we had created a character name "Michael Starwalker" the summer before.
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.

Re: Did Star Wars cash in on Star Trek?

World War II fighter battle also were a big inspiration for Lucas. Now Gene looked at spacecraft more like bomber pilots looked at their "ships."

I think a movie maker who helped destroy Enterprise in Search for Spock had flown in Hueys. Wreck one, get another--so the love of ships is lost on that mindset.

This is one reason I want bigger Trek ships. I want to see a Space 1999 Eagle, The Falcon Spikes Swordfish, a Viper and Hatchet fighter, all together in a Federation Hanger bay.

A scene that would really work well would be for a turbolift door to open and you see the Tardis interior beyond.
