Roddenberry was a pretty good writer, maybe not to everyone's tastes, sometimes not even mine, but what he turned out was well executed. I think his biggest flaw was in the producing area where he tended to micromanage everything, and stifle the creativity of the people around him.
If you read "Captain's Logs: The Unauthorized Complete Trek Voyages
", it seems every writer hated the guy in the TMP / early-TNG era. He rewrote everyone's stuff.
