It's nice that he liked it and all but Rod Roddenberry really doesn't have any more insight into Star Trek than the rest of us do so it's really just another opinion.
I tend to agree. Doesn't he run Roddenberry Enterprises, making $$ off of his father's legacy?
If he runs it well and provides quality entertainment and a chance for new talent to break through, why the hell not?
That's like saying John Romita, Jr. is just an extension of his father, isn't it?
The guy is young yet, too, so perhaps he'll make his mark through RE and do his father proud.
But yeah, his opinion isn't what matters--John Q. Public's is.
