Of course, after Paramount decided there was to be a new TV show, Roddenberry had to be back as the creator. But just because he was a great creator back in the '60s doesn't mean he'll be a great creator in the '80s, and so we got what we got with TNG (as much as I liked it.)
Roddenberry wasn't the first choice of Paramount to create a new series, more like fourth or fifth behind people like Leonard Nimoy and Greg Strangis. IIRC.
