Re: RIP Gene Roddenberry (1921 - 1991)

The Trek BBS often comes across as a general GR bashing board IMHO, so this is a welcome thread. GR was a genuine visionary, and wrote some truly magnificent material.

I can only thank him for a creation that has become a passion, and continues to give me immense pleasure - as it has for the majority of my life.

I don't think Gene was close to the best of humanity but I've definitely wasted at least a couple thousand hours in his sandbox.

Growing up it offered an escape from what was a very difficult life. For that alone, I owe much to Mr. Roddenberry.
Both of this is SO true for me as well !!
