Ironic, considering Roddenberry's "Wagon Train to the stars" sales pitch from 1964.
Roddenberry had one advantage: In the days of TOS the Western genre was still a popular thing that made a lot of money.
Nowadays, productions of that genre are a rather rare sight, making it harder to pitch things like that successfully.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
