My point exactly.
Star Trek lives on.
Star Wars will be no different.

the man speaks truth.
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown

Dead from an industry standpoint, or from a creative standpoint?

Creatively, Star Wars is way past its golden days. The recent trilogy was a complete disaster, and the plethora of unnecessary and unneeded fan service/pandering has only proven that Lucas is far, far, far more interested in making money than in producing high-quality art. It might not be totally dead, but it's on life-support.

From an industrial standpoint, Star Wars will likely continue to be a ever-present force in the entertainment industry. More books will constantly be written to the die-hard fanbase and new 'updates' to the movies are likely to continue. New video games will be created, etc. So I disagree that Star Wars will become forgotten anytime soon, I just wonder exactly what Star Wars will remain famous for: it's amazing original trilogy, or all the uninspired mediocrity produced afterwards?
