Rod on his dad…
“My father, Gene Roddenberry, was an ordinary man with an extraordinary vision for the world – one of unconditional love, diversity, and unity of all people – and that vision is shown through not only Star Trek, but through the words he spoke in his lectures, his interviews and his writings. To have members of the Star Trek franchise and celebrity fans bring those words back to life is a very exciting way to celebrate a momentous year in his history,” says Rod Roddenberry.
