Interesting. Sadly typical of Roddenberry to deny that he was drawing on others' work. He not only took credit for things his collaborators came up with, he couldn't even admit his influences! He had to pretend he made up everything himself.

You forgot to mention 17:01 at the top of Forbidden Planet.
Umm, I can't tell if you're joking or referring to something real about the movie. We know that Matt Jefferies picked "1701" because it was more legible onscreen than other numbers.
