Default Was Star Trek influenced by Forbidden Planet?

I have just read that like Star Trek, a modern version of Forbidden Planet is being made. I love that film and think that it is similar to Trek in many ways, and even captures the alieness of thinks in a way that TOS did, but which all the later Trek series have failed to do.

Given the similarities do you think Rodenberry was influenced by this film?

well i think Roddenberry even said it had. I rewatched it the other day, and the similarities are striking....

From the Earth Federation
The Ship Name.
The world.
The captain getting the girl.
The Single girl survivor of a doomed expedition and her father ((Hmmmm...nope...no "The Cage" plot points in there))

The out of communication with home.
Communicators.
Tricorders.
Oh just so many things
