Not even close

The Office has generated a bunch of memes, some catchphrases, and people who quote it a little less often than they quote The Big Lebowski.

Star Trek generated 7(?) spinoffs, almost a dozen movies, countless conventions, hundreds of books written within the Star Trek universe, quite a few nonfiction books about its production, billions of dollars worth of merchandise, costumes, and collectors' items, a damn language that they translated the Bible into, and considerably more fame for its actors to boot. And some memes and catchphrases.

I'd argue that "per episode" might even be unnecessary in LeadingEdge's post. Seinfeld might be closer than The Office, but they're both nothing more than the dominant sitcoms of their day, no more culturally impactful than I Love Lucy or M*A*S*H.
