Star Trek: Creating the Classic (Roddenberry interview, 1986)

Here’s a nice little interview with Gene Roddenberry on Good Morning America from 1986, talking about the creation of Star Trek and some of the issues related to it.

I really liked this comment:

Mass communications is our language today, between one another; and we can’t say, “well let’s not really talk about anything serious on television.” That is a criminal statement, and a criminal intention.

Right on, Gene. We miss you, buddy.

  1. You will find it difficult to believe but that is the first time I have seen a moving picture image of Gene or heard his voice. I thank you very much, Bill. Wiser than he Earth does not produce. A splendid insight into the Great Bird!

  2. That is some fabulous hair the lady at the show has. I wonder if she was wearing some long sweater socks too?
