^The streams were crossed long ago. The cantina scene was based on TOS's "Journey to Babel."
Gary Mitchell was levitating cups before Vader and shooting lightning before Palpatine.
And Harry Mudd was a roguish smuggler when Han Solo was in diapers.
I strongly suspect Mudd shot first.
^That particular claim seems unlikely. There were surely plenty of "space tavern" scenes in prose and pulp science fiction over the decades. It would be a mistake to treat either Star Trek or Star Wars as the unique originator of any trope; they both distilled and popularized the pre-existing tropes of the genres they drew on.
However, I've discussed earlier in the thread how a number of elements of Star Wars terminology, and the title itself, were inspired by Star Trek. Lucas is on record as saying (in Eugene Roddenberry, Jr.'s Trek Nation documentary) that it was the success of ST in syndication that helped him convince studio executives that a science fiction film could be profitable.
I've never heard that before and I've read a hell of a lot about Star Wars.
i would like to see jar jar binks piss off Worf or even any Klingon for that matter.
