This story takes a funny look at a time when Gene Roddenberry was working in Los Angeles in the late 60's as a motorcycle cop, writing part time for TV westerns, and pitching his new series concept, "Star Trek." The story takes place over the period of a week or so as Roddenberry's character encounters several personaltiies, sights and sounds that eventually become part of the orginal "Star Trek" series lore.

Goofs

Gene Roddenberry himself didn't design the Enterprise. Matt Jeffries did. The drawing that Roddenberry was doodling in his apartment wasn't one of Jefferie's initial concepts for the ship. See more »

How Roddenberry created Star Trek
7 April 2005 | by (Netherlands, Hilversum) – See all my reviews

Very nice and (unfortunately) short movie about Gene Roddenberry and how he came up with ideas for Star Trek. The film is full with little details which relate to the trek-series. Roddenberry is a police officer and big sci-fi fan. While he's in the middle of creating Star trek, daily situations as his job as a police officer help him to give him ideas for the story. It is a must see for everyone who likes Star Trek, but you don't have to be a "Trekkie" to like this one. The film has a lot of former star trek actors in it which makes it even more interesting.

I rated this one 9.
