I had met Rod Roddenberry a handful of times over the years at various Star Trek events and conventions. Although, I was not able to attend to the 55th Anniversary of Star Trek at the Rio in Las Vegas, I had the next best adventure. I got to speak with Rod Roddenberry about the his father Gene Roddenberry’s 100th birthday being celebrated today, August, 19th.

The elder Roddenberry wasn’t just a science fiction writer, but a World War II veteran, a plane crash survivor over Syria and worked for the police department here in Southern California (listen above for all the details). Gene Roddenberry lived five lifetimes and 55 years later we still celebrate his greatest work of science fiction with Star Trek.

Official Statement:

Rod has devoted his life to carrying on his father’s legacy, and his radical vision of a diverse and inclusive world – which Gene depicted through the philosophy he imbued in Star Trek, including a cast with a multi-ethnic crew and putting one of the first Inter-racial kisses on the TV screen. Additionally, he previously narrated and executive produced the documentary TrekNation, where he explores the positive impact of his father’s iconic franchise has had on people’s lives.

The centennial celebration of Gene Roddenberry encompasses a number of activations and initiatives that we call #thinkTrek. This includes #talkTrek, #seeTrek, #beTrek, and #makeTrek, all being shared and interacted with via social media platforms.
