Wonder why she said Gene died between 2nd and 3rd seasons when he in fact died a couple years afterwards? Honest mistake? Still a good interview though.
Mistakes are made about people associated with Star Trek prematurely dying all the time...
Wil Wheaton made the same mistake in a blog post about how he couldn't leave the series because Gene had died and Berman wouldn't let him. Or something like that.
What they were probably both remembering (or misremembering) is that Roddenberry was no longer involved in the series in any real way any longer.
