Gene was OK with NEW Vision
 
trekmovie.com has put together some quotes from Mr. Roddenberry from the past decades.

Click here read what he had to say...

I can imagine him being okay with whatever got him more money. ;)

There was some great stuff from Gene. Especially liked the part where he said he hopes to see something in the future with Kirk and Spock played by new actors and that it could be better than anything he did. Thought that was wonderful.

There we go... stright from the horses mouth.

I think it is great that even though Gene is the creator of Star Trek, he had hoped that someone would someday try to make Star Trek even better than what he could.

I know Gene would have endorsed these other forms of Trek.
I'm sure the motion picture hit him hard that his vision didn't translate well to the big screen. Like Lucas Gene had great ideas but was perhaps not the greatest story teller at that point at least both realized it was time to hand the idea over to the true artist of stage and screen.

I think so too.

It's quite obvious that Gene, the creator of Star Trek, seems less posessive of it than a fair share of fans.

Num Nums-

Some good GR quotes there.

Less posessive?
I don't know about that.
Lucas had a drive to own his creation true.
But Gene had a drive to share his creation. I thought that was part of it for him. He struck a compromise.
