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…
