Well, Star Wars sounds much better than 'Journal of the Whills, Part 1' !!!

Wasn't SW originally called something like "Chronicles of the Starkiller Episode 1: The Star Wars" or similar?

Starkiller was Sheridan's nickname.

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

Probably want to check the Rinzler book to be sure, but I think the Starkiller name lasted right up to the start of shooting.

As far as that goes, the TPM script I read before ep 1 got released still had light sabers being called lazer swords ... over 20 years later and GL still didn't have the nomenclature locked in, I guess ...

I can check the book later, but I think the name was changed from Starkiller to Skywalker during shooting.

They're still called that in one scene of the film.
