If you mean wasn't Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev and not by Tchaikovsky, you would be right and wrong. Both composers have written music for a Romeo and Juliet scenario; Tchaikovsky wrote a fantasy overture and Prokofiev a ballet. As to the scene in question I didn't notice if Williams quoted from either of these pieces, but Across the Stars for some reason has always reminded me of a "Romeo and Juliet" idea.
