Roddenberry Still Knows Little About New Trek Series

PLUS: Creator’s son talks fan-films, and lawsuits … kind of

Although it’s been a few weeks since Rod Roddenberry joined the team of the upcoming Star Trek: Series 6 as an executive producer, it seems the son of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry still knows little about the show Bryan Fuller is putting together. “I know very little about the direction,” Roddenberry told TrekZone’s Matt Miller. “I’ve had two meetings with Bryan Fuller. He brought the writers together, and h …

Mignogna: ‘Continues’ Fan Series Leads By Example

Latest crowdfunding campaign will produce three episodes, and a lot of joy

As CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures move forward on a copyright infringement lawsuit against one fan-film production, other amateur Star Trek producers are keeping one eye toward the courtroom, and another on their latest project. And that’s no different for “Star Trek Continues” executive producer and star Vic Mignogna. When we say “amateur,” of course, we don’t mean anything about the people involved or the …

Celebrating A Great Achievement By Gene, Majel

Oh, and a happy birthday to Rod Roddenberry, too!

It’s funny … the first time I had a chance to interact with Rod Roddenberry, probably 15 years ago now, I didn’t even realize Gene Roddenberry had a son. It’s not that I didn’t know. I mean, I remember when Gene got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he introduced his son, and I remember this small blond kid joining his dad at his side, and I remembered being a little jealous because I thought that kid got to see all the Star Trek movies before the rest of us. But Rod was out there, and as the Internet was finding its footing, so was he. Back then, he had a site ca …

San Francisco Artist Wins Enterprise In Space Contest

Entry is first major step into launching an 8-foot orbiter into space

The future of space flight may be beginning with a conceptual artist out of San Francisco. Stanley von Medvey — an amateur astronomer, professional artist and member of the National Space Society — designed the winning concept for the NSS’ Enterprise In Space contest. Medvey outlasted two rounds of judging to win the grand prize and now will have to sit back and wait while the NSS tries to raise the funds to construct and then launch the orbiter already set to carry the name “Enterprise.” Organizers say it could cost as much as $39 million to make the project a reality. …

It’s Not The Enterprise, But It Carried Gene Roddenberry

Family Rolls Royce used by Star Trek creator on charity auction block

There’s a lot that can be said of the pride Gene Roddenberry had in the contribution his creation of Star Trek gave to society. But anyone who knew the Great Bird of the Galaxy also knew that he was not someone who liked to show off his success. The house he lived in for so many years was a five bedroom — quite modest by Hollywood standards. Gene’s closet was filled with the kind of clothes many older men had at the time, including clip-on ties. But when “Star Trek: The Next Generation” became a smash success in first-run syndication in the late 1980s, Gene finally found bo …

Roddenberry Would Approve Of Gay Sulu, Son Says

PLUS: One reporter shares how news helped him come out

He may not be “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, but son Rod Roddenberry probably knew him best. And days after a minor controversy erupted over the “outing” of John Cho’s Hikaru Sulu in the upcoming “Star Trek: Beyond,” the younger Roddenberry said including a gay character in Star Trek is something his father would’ve been behind. “I think he would be 100 percent in favor of a gay character in Star Trek,” Roddenberry told the Associated Press. “There’s so much going on in the world today. I think he would love any sort of social issue being brought into Star Trek.” …

New TV Trek To Be ‘Smart’ Show

Incoming executive producer Trevor Roth shares a little insight

There’s so much secrecy shrouding the new Star Trek television series for CBS All Access, you might think J.J. Abrams was involved. (Don’t worry, he’s not). But one thing producers can say about the new show? It’s going to be smart, and filled with people that audiences can connect with. At least according to one of the new show’s executive producers, Roddenberry Entertainment chief operating officer Trevor Roth. “At the end of the day, there are certain tenets of Star Trek th …

The Past, The Present, The Future Of 1701News

Star Trek news site celebrates third anniversary, with changes afoot

This is a slightly more personal story than what you would normally find in the news section of 1701News, but I felt there was some important information I wanted to share with you, and felt here in our news section would help ensure that you saw it. I am the editor-in-chief of this site, which I co-founded with Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth of Roddenberry Entertainment on April 25, 2013. The idea was to join forces — my group, which was behind Airlock Alpha (which debuted as SyFy World, and later SyFy Portal, in 1998), a …

CBS has been collecting a lot of big names for its new Star Trek series on CBS All Access. You know, Nicholas Meyer. Rod Roddenberry. Bryan Fuller. But has the series added the biggest name yet? You know, J.J. Abrams? There’s been no announcement at all, but one former actor in the Trek television franchise believes it’s true, dropping it as a quick aside during a recent interview. “You know, I’m looking at the people they’ve lined up working on it, and J.J. just came aboard as a producer,” former “Star Trek: The Next Generation” star Brent Spiner told Collider. “And yo …
