Liz Shatners Trekkie Story

The Supreme Trekkie Guy came to earth nearly nine decades ago. Gene Roddenberry embarked on a science fictional odyssey which changed our lives and made millions of people happy. Thankyou Gene. The Star Trek Creator's authorized biography is written by David Alexander. Here's Liz Shatners trekkie story.

It's August 19th and on this day in Sci-Fi History, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was born in El Paso, Texas in 1921. Gene Roddenberry was an aviator and a Los Angeles Police Officer before he developed the idea for star Trek in 1964. The sci-fi series was finally picked up by Desilu Studios when Gene sold the idea as "Wagon Train To The Stars." The original 500,000 dollar pilot received minor support from NBC but the Network commissioned an unprecedented second pilot.

Star Trek TOS series premiered on Sept 8th, 1966 and ran for three seasons before it was cancelled. Eventually Gene would live to see a next generation of Star Trek and six original series films before his untimely death death in October in 1991, just a few days after viewing Star Trek 6, The Undiscovered Country. Gene Roddenberry left his place in Science Fiction History with a legacy that few have been able to achieve.

Live Long and Prosper Trekkers!
