Yeah he really ruined the franchise
Apart from the fact that there would have been no "franchise" without him?
Well, that's not really true. It was Paramount
that turned Star Trek into a franchise. They were the ones that pushed and authorized more Trek shows and movies. Otherwise, things would have stopped with TOS (in hindsight, Trek wouldn't have happened at all if it wasn't for Lucille Ball thinking Trek was a cool idea and signing Roddenberry to a development deal at Desilu).
