Without Gene, there would be no Earth: Final Conflict....I mean, Star Trek.
You left out Andromeda.

^ Why does the world insist on practically ignoring Gene's most majestic creation of all: Pretty Maids All in a Row?

I actually really enjoyed that in its day. Reminded me of a raunchy "Room 222" meets "The Graduate". Indeed, Angie Dickinson's seduction of a young student was extremely reminiscent of Anne Bancroft seducing poor ol' Dustin Hoffman in TG.

Re: What do people feel about Gene?

Not having met the man, I cannot say much, but after hearing enough stories from the TOS and TNG cast, the man was a worse creep than Shatner back in the old days

That he created TOS gives him some credit, but his personal behavior was bloody appauling.

at the end of the day, He created Star Trek and should be given credit. But we should not forget some of his less savory habits

Why? He's been dead and gone for twenty years, and nothing he did was any of our business anyway.

What good does it do to keep harping on forty year old stories that none of us witnessed anyway?

He created Star Trek as you said. That's the only thing any of us should care about.
