Gene Roddenberry, of course. How many other writers have spawned a TV series that lasted more than 40 years?
From the frontiers of science to the end of our galaxy, Gene opened up the universe more than any other sci/fi writer in history.
I remember well my top ten favourites of all the episodes:
- The Squire Of Gothos
- City On The Edge Of Forever
- Spectre Of The Gun
- Encounter At Farpoint
- Best Of Both Worlds
- Measure Of A Man
- The Offspring
- Remember Me
- All The "Q" Episodes
The whole medieval/religious concept of "heavens above" and "hell below" changed with Gene's viewpoint of high tech civilizations in a high tech universe. Our loss is the future's gain.
