Eugene Wesley Roddenberry (August 19, 1921 - October 24, 1991) was the creator of Star Trek universe, and an executive producer on Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Animated Series, and Star Trek: The Next Generation, until his death in 1991.

His voice is heard over the bridge intercom from the TOS episode "Charlie X", when the Enterprise food galley has its meatloaf replaced with turkey.

His hand was filmed as Apollo's for the original special-effect in the TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?".

Gene Roddenberry also wrote several episodes of the series, as well as writing the novelization for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, based upon Alan Dean Foster's screenplay.

In FictionEdit

Roddenberry was visited in 1964 by time-traveller J. R. Rasmussen, who offered ideas for a new television show, an idea he'd already been mulling over-after finding the unpublished story "Far Beyond The Stars." (Amalgamation of DS9 novelization Far Beyond the Stars and SNW short story: "Research")

On his deathbed in 1991, Roddenberry was visited by three familiar figures, who offered to take him to the future, an offer he accepted. (SNW short story: "The Man Who Sold the Sky")

Roddenberry's name is never actually used in either of these two stories, but his identity is clear in context.
In addition, Roddenberry's name has also appeared on numerous Okudagrams and starship dedication plaques. His face is also used as that of Captain Robert April in the Star Trek Encyclopedia
