I could be wrong, but I think you’d be hard-pressed to find many, if any, Star Wars references in shows like Seinfeld…

No Star Wars references, but Star Trek

Yea, I feel like Star Trek had much more momentum coming out of the 80s and into the 90s until 97-99. Star Trek was a consistent presence in the cinema throughout the 80s and you no less than three concurrent TV series during a period in the 90s, so it makes sense that for what little there was, you’d see more Trek references than Star Wars references. Also, Trek predates Star Wars by a decade, so folks who grew up on that would have started becoming influential in the 90s too.

Then Star Trek died.
