Re: I am then in error as to ages. But my impression remains the same. Rod did not really know his father, I think. Which is perhaps a not uncommon state for fathers and sons. Or does anyone here think that Rod has bold, new insights into Star Trek and Gene Roddenberry's life and work? I respect him. But he is no writer, not a producer, not a creator of anything. He is a latter-day spectator, trying to find familial meaning in the past. I honor his search and I welcome his unique input.
