In 1943, top scientist from around the country receive a mysterious and classified letter, it says “Go to 109 East Palace Avenue, Sante Fe, New Mexico. There you will find out how to complete your trip.” Upon arriving they are transported to a lonely mesa, this will be their home for the next two years. Here amongst the sand and rock, cactus and weeds, barracks and shacks, in this primitive place they would change everything, invent new science, win a world war and bring everyone closer to extinction.

TREK NATION | DISCOVERY SCIENCE | EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
2 HOUR SPECIAL AIRED NOV, 2011.
A son’s journey… taking place over 10 years, Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, son of Stek Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, travels the world collecting dozens of interviews, and tries to piece together a portait of a father he never really knew.
This was a challenging project but a blast to make. We were approached by Discovery Science to assemble together a coherent story based off of the hundreds of hours of footage Rod and his partner had recorded over the past decade. The footage arrived in a dusty crate and it was amazing – Roddenberry home movies, amateur film from the original Star Trek, film reels of the first Trek conventions, as well as fantastic interviews with fans as well as, er… George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Stan Lee, Seth McFarlane, Ronald D. Moore, Nichelle Nichols, Patrick Stewart, Wil Wheaton, Rob Zombie, etc…
