Gene Roddenberry

Roddenberry with [[Space Shuttle Enterprise|Space Shuttle ''Enterprise'']] in [[Palmdale, California]], 1976 Eugene Wesley Roddenberry Sr. (August 19, 1921 – October 24, 1991) was an American television screenwriter and producer who created the science fiction franchise ''Star Trek.'' Born in El Paso, Texas, Roddenberry grew up in Los Angeles, where his father was a police officer. Roddenberry flew 89 combat missions in the Army Air Forces during World War II and worked as a commercial pilot after the war. Later, he joined the Los Angeles Police Department and began to write for television.

As a freelance writer, Roddenberry wrote scripts for ''Highway Patrol'', ''Have Gun – Will Travel'', and other series, before creating and producing his own television series, ''The Lieutenant.'' In 1964, Roddenberry created the original ''Star Trek'' series, which premiered in 1966 and ran for three seasons. He then worked on projects including a string of failed television pilots. The syndication of ''Star Trek'' led to its growing popularity, resulting in the ''Star Trek'' feature films, which Roddenberry continued to produce and consult on. In 1987, the sequel series ''Star Trek: The Next Generation'' began airing on television in first-run syndication; Roddenberry was involved in the initial development but took a less active role after the first season due to ill health. He consulted on the series until his death in 1991.

In 1985, Rodenberry became the first TV writer with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was later inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame. Years after his death, Roddenberry was one of the first humans to have their ashes carried into earth orbit. ''Star Trek'' has inspired films, books, comic books, video games and fan films set in the ''Star Trek'' universe. Provided by Wikipedia
