C-

Rick was there from day one to make sure GR did not repeat TMP problems and budget. Rick took over after GR's health failed.

Yep, Berman was sent by the studio initially to keep things (namely Roddenberry) in check. But I think he really started to take over as showrunner during TNG's third season. By the show's fourth season, Roddenberry's visits to the set started to become fewer and fewer...

Well by the 4th season GR was as good as dead, he was immobile, and not cognizant most of the time.

Sad, but true.

I think one of the last things Roddenberry did with Trek was give Rick Berman and the late Michael Piller his blessing to go forward with DS9. He may not have known exactly what the show was all about, but he gave them "the word" (as Kirk said in Star Trek III) to continue the franchise forward...

It was totally a symbolic thing, but I thought it was nice.

Agreed. But GR himself had hoped Trek would go on and one day be unrecognizable as what it started as.

Gene was also the one who unfortunately dubbed TAS as non-canon.
