Gene Roddenberry (b.1921 – d.1991)
As the creator of Star Trek, he is considered by sci-fi geeks as one of the granddaddies of space fiction. But do they know about Gene Roddenberry, the WWII combat pilot that flew in 89 missions and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross? Or what about Sergeant Roddenberry who served for seven years as a police officer? His character, Mr. Spock, was allegedly based on the LAPD chief’s rational and unemotional personality. Finally, by the late 50s, Gene began writing TV scripts, and the Roddenberry legacy continues to this day.
