I SAID his page had a different recollection of the event but that it involved Nimoy/GR issues.
Whoops! I wasn't familiar with the name of the person who runs that website, just the name of the site itself. My apologies...

I suppose the another issue with Sackett's account (which I haven't read) is that she wasn't in the meeting about the book, and her source (Roddenberry's lawyer) isn't exactly renowned for his trustworthiness.

I haven't read all of The Making of Star Trek--The Motion Picture, but Sackett's introduction reads like Gene Roddenberry's preferred history of the series. In other words, one that (a) diminishes, ignores, or takes credit for the contributions of as many other people as possible and (b) flatters his fan base.
