Re: Was Roddenberry a Terrible Writer?

Well, that's probably because when Roddenberry tried to speak his mind Nick Meyer told him to go jump off a cliff.
To be fair, Roddenberry threw a fit about Meyer's original plan of making Saavik the traitor because he didn't like the idea of such a popular character betraying her shipmates. Meyer told him, "Well, I'm the one who created the Saavik character, so I can use her however I want. If you have a problem with it, then maybe you should give back all the money you made off the films I was involved with. Then I'll care what you think."
