You really don't want to know what I think of the dude.
Seriously. Starting with the falsehood of "brilliant"... it just gets evil from there on in.

Gene Roddenberry deserves a lot of credit for creating Star Trek (and finding talented people to develop it further). Like any Human being, he wasn't perfect and there were some questionable creative choices in later years, but still none of us would be here talking about this wonderful fictional universe if it wasn't for him.

'Nuff said.

Yeah, the dude ain't the same as Star Trek no matter how much people try to link them together Lucas "God" style.

Pee-Wee Herman was a funny guy, but Paul Reubens has/had problems. I don't link that to his playhouse even though I should probably give that another think through.
