And what if Captain Kirk or Picard calls his buddy Q, whose magic, or whatever you want to call it, is way more powerful than any Force? Jedi can be killed, Force or not. Sith too. Even Darth Vader.

But in some ways, this would be like claiming that the Third Reich, though it only lasted 12 years, was influential because all that death and destruction lead to post modern and post Christian thinking that has been blossoming since 1945.
I'm going with Israel, though it was hardly, ever a large Empire.
