Re: Is Rod Roddenberry kind of a douche?

I think the problem I have with Rod is that he presents himself as though he has some sort of Hollywood street-cred and he doesn't. I don't think he's written or produced anything. I think if he wants to follow in his father's footsteps, by all means, but he has to put some work into it. But his main source of money seems to be from selling prop recreations. While his dad was not unknown for merchandising, and Majel ran Lincoln Enterprises, Gene certainly was a capable writer who managed to navigate through Hollywood and get things done, and Rod isn't. And so I just don't take him seriously. I don't know what he has to offer the world of science-fiction other than some anecdotes from his childhood.
