Gene Roddenberry was a part-time journeyman TV writer, selling to the occasional show.
This part is not really accurate. He was not a "part-time journeyman TV writer". Although a freelance writer for a long time, he wrote pretty much constantly for TV from 1954 up to Star Trek. I wish I could write as many scripts as he did in only 10 years.
That's what journeyman means in writing. A writer-for-hire who's not on staff.
