All speculation.
It explains what happened. Majel didn't want children not her own to get any of the fortune, so she arranged things. It happens in families all the time: children from a prior marriage get cut out.

All of this can also be explained by brain parasites fighting a hidden xenophobic war against other symbiotic beings.

The difference is, my explanation is something that arises from human nature and happens all the time in real life. The children of a prior marriage don't end up with nothing by accident. It gets arranged for them.

As a lifelong fan I know a lot about TOS, both in-universe and behind the scenes, and if I ever knew the Roddenberry daughters existed, I'd forgotten entirely. They really are pretty obscure. I knew that Shatner and Whitney had their kids in "Miri," but not GR.
Were GR's daughter not mentioned by his first wife when she claimed that he made up Star Trek to entertain them?
