That false rumor that Alan Dean Foster ghost-wrote Roddenberry's ST:TMP novelization was instigated by a French translation that left out the middle chunk of credits for the screenplay.
I thought it would be because he also ghostwrote the Star Wars movie novelization, which was credited to George Lucas, and wrote pretty much every sci-fi movie novelization in the 1970s and 80s.
They're both factors in the origin of the rumor. I've also heard Foster wrongly attributed with ghostwriting the Close Encounters of the Third Kind novelization, which was actually ghostwritten by Leslie Waller.
