Re: Was Roddenberry a Terrible Writer?

With each film, Roddenberry spent more and more time typing up angry, hateful memos that he circulated around the Paramount lot for everyone to read.
From what I've read, as the movie series went along, Roddenberry spent less and less time dictating memos of any sort about them. In the Star Trek II production files there are a number of detailed memos from Roddenberry about the script; in the Star Trek VI production files there are none.

Indeed, on that last film, Roddenberry elected not to take his usual "executive consultant" credit -- although he still took the money.
