Take this thread with nothing more than a grain of salt. I'm not here to say that Star Wars will ruin Star Trek, or get in its way. This is something I've been hearing from a lot of people lately, and wanted to discuss it here. First, here is a timeline of the Star Trek/Star Wars movies and their release dates: 1977 - Star Wars 1979 - Star Trek: The Motion Picture 1980 - SW: The Empire Strikes Back 1982 - ST: Wrath of Khan 1983 - SW: Return of the Jedi 1984 - ST: The Search for Spock 1986 - ST: The Voyage Home 1989 - ST: The Final Frontier 1991 - ST: The Undiscovered Country 1994 - ST: Generations 1996 - ST: First Contact 1998 - ST: Insurrection 1999 - SW: The Phantom Menace 2002 - ST: Nemesis 2005 - SW: Revenge of the Sith 2009 - Star Trek 2013 - Star Trek Into Darkness 2015 - Star Wars: Episode VII Having a Star Trek & Star Wars films being released only a few years apart isn't anything new. I think its a given that Star Wars will probably always make more money than Star Trek. With the 2009 film, it brought a lot of newcomers to come and see it. However, it was also the only major Sci-fi film to be released, and same with the upcoming Into Darkness. With Star Wars coming out with new films, and an expanded universe (solo films for example), does anyone think it could ruin the chance of Star Trek really continuing, or will it end with the JJ Abrams movies (possibly a third and final one)?
