Re: What happened to Rod Roddenberry's "Trek Nation" doc?

Specifically they are looking for the following materials for potential inclusion in the film.

Video/Film Footage from 1970’s Conventions; guest speakers, the convention floor, etc.
Behind the Scenes of TOS & TNG
Letters, photos, news articles, TV film clips of the late 1960’s Letter Writing Campaign to Save Star Trek.

I guess Paramount/CBS/Entertainment Tonight isn't going to license behind-the-scenes footage cheaply of TNG... The rest though I think will get sent to him.

the status on the main website still says 'seeking distribution' so the film isn't finished enough for a distributor to purchase it and start the licensing process.
