I don't know if he is or not, nor do I care. But, Majel's rule of "no Star Trek talk in the house" has me wondering about HER.

What the hell kind of rule is THAT??

But then, what else to to be expected from the woman who voluntarily played Luxwana Troi??
Honestly, my take on that rule is that their lives were so connected to Star Trek that they needed a place to break free of it and explore the other aspects of their lives. Otherwise, I could see how Star Trek could have become even more all encompassing in their lives.
You have to remember, we love Star Trek as our recreation. An escape from real life. For the ROddenberrys, Star Trek was work. It was their daily lives. It seems no different than the doctor who won't discuss medical matters at home.

I may be wrong, since I don't know these people personally. I've met them each a few times, and each time they seemed genuinely friendly, and appreciative of their association with Trek.
Even as a young child (when I met him) Rod was pleasant to chat with.
In all the history of the world, a riot has NEVER broken out at a Sci-Fi convention.
