Star Trek’s Rod Roddenberry was asked a question…


In a past interview, Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, said that the franchise was “a multi-generational family saga.” He also stated that he would be interested in joining one of the writer’s rooms for a future series. Whether you’re a fan or not, it seems like Roddenberry is someone who has been paying attention to what makes television successful and could bring some new life into an aging franchise.

He recently went onto Reddit where he asked the question “ask me anything…”, this was followed by a wave of responses relating to where he thinks the Star Trek franchise will end up, but specifically, one of the biggest questions asked was “Will you ever write for the show?”.

Roddenberry’s response was simply “I would love to write for the show, but felt it was best kept to the talent that is already in place”.

Roddenberry has experience writing, producing, and directing TV shows. He co-wrote a pilot with his father called The Quest which aired on SyFy back in 2010. Roddenberry also worked as an executive producer on Star Trek: Voyager between different roles and ventures.

Star Trek has laid out the foundation for many other Sci-Fi TV shows, from story backgrounds to diversity and culture changes. Roddenberry is definitely someone who could bring new life to the series and continue the legendary Gene Roddenberry’s legacy.
