Depends what you mean by Roddenberry trek? If its TOS era trek cool yeah. If its his retarded vision displayed in the first 2 series of TNG the HELL NO!
That "retarded vision displayed in the first 2 series of TNG" was pretty much 75% Berman. Half-way through the first season, Roddenberry handed over the reins to Berman and stepped back into a supervisory (i.e., back seat driver) role.
"Roddenberry vision"

I hate that phrase, it makes his sound like some prophet or something.
It's been twisted somewhat over the years, but it's really just a term given to his initial idea of a starship with a very diverse crew exploring the Galaxy together in an idealized future.
