Well what I head from the planed action TV serie sounded quite well. In oposite to Clone Wars it will be made for adults, the story will be ready before the series starts (in oposite to BSG e.g.), he includes some serious authors who know their jobs, the serie will become darker again, it will go away from the known main characters, it will be more like the old trilogie. If all that is true, it will become great.

As it was already mentioned, Lucas is a trekkie and was clearly influenced by Star Trek.

There is the famous scene from Empire when the Falcon is chased by a Star Destroyer and all of a sudden 'disappears'. That's when Captian Needa says, "they've can't have disappeared. No ship that small has a cloaking device."

Using the line 'cloaking device' was Lucas' homage to Star Trek.

Ummm...I don't recall any movies or TV series between 3 and 4 (I don't really pay attention to video games), so I'm not really sure how you consider it "done to death." All of the Clone Wars stuff is between Eps 2 and 3, prior to Anakin's fall.

I know that I'm looking forward to the live action "dark times" series.

And despite all the Expanded Universe stories that do take place after Return of the Jedi, George Lucas maintains that the story officially ended with Return of the Jedi, as it was the second of the Skywalker trilogies, and his stories revolved around Anakin and Luke Skywalker.

Why would he not watch it.
His company made a good chunk of change doing the SFX.

Besides, what else is he going to watch, Wrong Turn 3?

ILM's been doing Trek work ever since The Motion Picture. I think it's safe to say Lucas has a vested interest in the success of Star Trek.

He probably was one of the first to see the final cut. Being an influential member of the industry and all, and having owned the company that did the effects.

I seriously doubt it.
I doubt he even knows when it's coming out. Lucas has seemed disconnected from reality. He doesn't make appearances and I don't think he'd concern himself with anyother genre.

I think Lucas will see it.

He doesn't consider himself in competition with any other franchise. He's not out to compete. He loves to make movies. Even if they do turn out contrary to what many of his older fans enjoy, it's simply his passion. That he makes money off of it is a big bonus. If Lucas was in competition with Star Trek, I doubt he'd want to help them out by renting the services of Industrial Light and Magic to the competition, even if it was "just for business".

The only competition I was aware of was a friendly competition between Lucas and his friend and colleague Steven Spielberg when "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial" was released. And then, when Star Wars was re-released in "Special Editions" in the theaters, Star Wars retook the top spot. In a special, lighthearted ceremony, E.T. handed the crown over to R2-D2.

(Then Titanic came along and put every other movie in its place. LOL!)

This "competition" and non-concern is something cooked up by opposing fanbases, based off of distaste for the other franchises.
