Statistics Saturday: Star Wars Movies versus Star Trek Movies


Bar chart showing the count of Star Wars and of Star Trek movies, per year, 1977 to 2020. Star Wars has a lead from 1977 to 1985; after that Star Trek takes the lead and never loses it again, although by 2019 Star Wars comes close to tying it.
Not pictured: that special 75-minute extended cut of The Omega Glory that Gene Roddenberry adapted from the original Star Trek to play in theaters in Italy and France in 1969 alongside the View-Master reel, nor The Ewok Adventures and Ewoks: The Battle For Endor, made for TV and aired in 1984 and 1985.

I was born 198 years to the day after Johnny Appleseed. The differences between us do not end there. He/him.

  1. Bizarrely the Ewok movies enjoyed a cinematic release in the UK. They definitely didn’t deserve it but I can never bring myself to hate them. I presume the unforgivable Star Wars Holiday Special was also omitted?

    1. I am not surprised they got some cinema releases, actually! I remember faintly liking them, but have not seen them since 1986 or so, so who knows what I would think now.

      And, yeah, the Holiday Special’s omitted since that was always and clearly intended for TV and people watching only ironically.
