Data de nascimento: 19. Agosto 1921
Data de falecimento: 24. Outubro 1991

Eugene Wesley Roddenberry foi um roteirista e produtor de televisão norte-americano. Ele é mais conhecido por criar a série de ficção científica Star Trek.

Roddenberry cresceu em Los Angeles, Califórnia, onde seu pai trabalhava como policial. Ele voou em 89 missões pelas Forças Aéreas durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, e depois trabalhou como piloto comercial após a guerra. Posteriormente ele seguiu os passos de seu pai, entrando para o Departamento de Polícia de Los Angeles para sustentar sua família. Ao mesmo tempo, ele começou a escrever roteiros para a televisão.

Como roteirista autônomo, Roddenberry escreveu para séries como Highway Patrol e Have Gun – Will Travel antes de criar e produzir seu próprio programa, The Lieutenant. Em 1964, ele criou Star Trek, que estreou dois anos depois e teve três temporadas antes de ser cancelada. Na syndication, a popularidade da série cresceu, e Roddenberry continuou a produzir os filmes da franquia e a série Star Trek: The Next Generation até sua morte em 1991. Ele recebeu uma estrela na Calçada da Fama e entrou nos halls da fama da Academia de Artes & Ciências Televisivas e Science Fiction Museum. Anos depois, Roddenberry se tornou o primeiro ser humano a ser "enterrado" no espaço.

—  Eugene Wesley Roddenberry

„Devemos questionar a lógica mentirosa de existir um Deus onisciente e onipotente, que cria humanos falhos, e então culpa-os por Seus próprios erros.“

—  Eugene Wesley Roddenberry

"We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes."

„Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow — it's not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans.“

—  Gene Roddenberry

Contexto: Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow — it's not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans. No, ancient astronauts did not build the pyramids — human beings built them, because they're clever and they work hard. And Star Trek is about those things.

„I condemn false prophets, I condemn the effort to take away the power of rational decision, to drain people of their free will — and a hell of a lot of money in the bargain.“

—  Gene Roddenberry

As quoted in In His Name (2010) by E. Christopher Reyes, p. 39
Contexto: I condemn false prophets, I condemn the effort to take away the power of rational decision, to drain people of their free will — and a hell of a lot of money in the bargain. Religions vary in their degree of idiocy, but I reject them all. For most people, religion is nothing more than a substitute for a malfunctioning brain.

„A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away.“

—  Gene Roddenberry
