I told him it's a possible future of Earth and not something that happened a long time ago in a galaxy far away.

Confusing the two franchises is a simple mistake.
Calling it "Star Track" is more along the lines of illiteracy, complacency, or just plain stupidity.
it "offends you".

If only George Lucas had called it "Galaxy Wars" or somthing else without the "Star" in front.

And they should be embarassed, and it's kinda nice to be a nerd and have others feel embarassed that they don't know as much as you do. It's kinda empowering to be honest. I hope my ego doesn't inflate too much.

I've had some friends say "Star Wars" by mistake, literally minutes after seeing the movie with me.

Star Wars is so engrained in people's vocabulary.

*sigh*

Here's hoping that one of these days, when a new Star Wars movie is released, it will be "Star Trek" that people are saying by mistake.
I have to say that's never happened to me in discussion about the new film. Everyone seems to know it's Star Trek and doesn't get their franchises mixed up!

You know what a Freudian slip is right?

It's when you mean to say one thing... and you say amother.

And if David Gilmore or Roger Waters mess up the lyrics in one of their songs, it's a "Floydian slip".
