Gene Roddenbery: The Flawed Hero of Star Trek
Original Airdates: Aug. 6-8, 2021
TVC 549.3: Part 2 of the conversation that began last week with Marc Cushman about the making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, including the back story of the iconic score composed by Jerry Goldsmith (and why Gene Roddenberry later chose to use it as the theme for Star Trek: The Next Generation). Marc’s latest book, These Are the Voyages: Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek in the 1970s, is a three-volume history of Star Trek/biography of Gene Roddenberry that chronicles the ten-year period spanning the cancellation of the original series in 1969 through the making and release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979. All three volumes are available through Jacobs Brown Media Group and include production reports, ratings, memos written by Gene Roddenberry, vintage press coverage, plus many original interviews by Marc Cushman himself.
