You father has touched many of us and was an important part of our lives. I many ways, he's helped with the careers we chose and continues to set the bar high for sci-fi, which is fast becoming normal science. Thanks for carrying the torch.

+Rod Roddenberry Just finished watching Trek Nation. Wow! I was expecting a Star Trek propaganda piece, but was taken aback by the genuine and honest journey of discovery. The authenticity of Trek Nation was very inspiring.

I know this video did the web-circuit a while back but I gotta say it a glimpse into a future that I want to be a part of. I hope Apple has seen this!

TREK NATION SCREENING

The reviews are in and Trek Nation premiered with tremendous success to audiences nationwide. In response, SCIENCE has programmed additional showings this month.

I can't think of a better way to celebrate than in the company of Star Trek friends who have helped to keep the Roddenberry spirit alive, so please join me at a private evening viewing of Trek Nation on December 18th in North Hollywood. It will be my honor to meet and thank you for your support of my dad and to hear how his vision may have inspired your own personal adventures.

Due to space limitations, the first 30 guests who R.S.V.P. to treknation@roddenberry.com will be contacted with more details.

You must R.S.V.P. via email, leaving a comment is not an acceptable R.S.V.P.

Story
Introduction
Eugene ‘Rod’ Roddenberry

Eugene Wesley Roddenberry, Jr., known as Rod, is the son of Gene Roddenberry, whose TV series, “Star Trek”, revolutionized television. Balancing his personal creativity and philanthropic investments with the family legacy, it is Rod's vision to be the guardian of his father's ideals and social values as well as a steward for scientific and technological advancements within a framework of environmental and social change. 

In his teenage years, Rod quenched his thirst for space and astronomy working as a Telescope Operator at the Mt. Wilson Observatory. He spent time teaching children to scuba dive at a camp in Big Pine Key, Florida, encouraging them to explore the unknown worlds below the ocean's surface, and also dipped his foot into the entertainment industry as a Production Assistant on several “Star Trek” series. 

Rod’s life changed dramatically during high school with the passing of his father. Beginning to comprehend the enormity of the universe Gene created, Rod realized that “Star Trek” was more than just a TV show, and wanted to understand why it touched the lives of so many. 

During his years at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, Rod continued to delve into areas that intrigued and inspired him, such as Astronomy, Physics, and Photography. He soon joined the Gene Roddenberry's “Earth: Final Conflict” television series as a Technical Advisor, gaining production experience, working with a brilliant cast and crew for 4 years, realizing firsthand the difficulties and disappointments of the process, and acquiring a new respect for his father's accomplishments. 

In 2001, Rod became the C.E.O. of Roddenberry Productions, working to bring the Roddenberry philosophy to new generation through innovative multimedia projects. From Rod’s first film project, "Trek Nation,” which documents an intimate exploration of his father’s work and its influence to the re-imagination of one of Gene’s most beloved pilot’s “Questor”, Rod has charged his company with the creation of completely original properties in a variety of media, such as the highly acclaimed science fiction graphic novel series, “Days Missing.” 

Reaching out to worldwide audiences, Rod has spoken at many science fiction conventions and hosted international forums on broad ranging topics from literature to the future of space travel. He currently serves on the Board of the Aquarium of the Pacific. 

Bringing the family legacy to full circle, in 2010, Rod established the Roddenberry Dive Team and launched The Roddenberry Foundation. 

In addition to environmental conservation and promoting the Roddenberry ideals and social values, the Roddenberry Dive Team provides members the opportunity to explore the “strange new worlds” that live below our oceans’ surface. While the Roddenberry Dive Team focuses on what we can do today, The Roddenberry Foundation works towards a better tomorrow. Through its philanthropic efforts, the Foundation funds innovative solutions to critical global issues in science and technology, the environment, education and humanitarian advances, helping Gene’s inspired vision of the future to become a reality.
