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 was being deliberately facetious.

I thought that was obvious.

Oh well.
