Summary
Presents an interview with the creator of 'Star Trek,' detailing his memories of the television show and their characters, and revealing his philosophical views
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Gene Roddenberry created a mythology for the twentieth century: "Star Trek". One of the most successful television shows and cultural icons of all time, "Star Trek" was a forum for probing some of life's fundamental questions: What is the difference between sexuality and love? Where does duty end and morality begin? What does it mean to be human? As Roddenberry faced the end of his life, his last wish was to address humanity directly. Insisting that no one could really know him without becoming part of his private world, he invited Yvonne Fern to live with him and his wife, Majel Barrett. "I want you to write me," he said. But this book is more than a portrait of a single life - it is a shared journey, into the meaning and worth of human existence. The two began this book as a collaboration, but as Roddenberry's health failed, Fern's task was to convey the richness of what passed between them. Reading their dialogue, we are able to glimpse the luminous future that Gene Roddenberry knew was possible for all of us.
