Summary
Roddenberry, an undistinguished writer of cop shows, set out to produce 'Hornblower in space' and ended up with an optimistic, almost utopian view of humanity's future loved by hundreds of millions of people around the world. Parkin examines some of the great myths and turning points in the franchise's history, and Roddenberry's particular contribution to them. He charts the various attempts to resuscitate the show during the wilderness years in the 1970s, explores Roddenberry's initial early involvement in the movies and spin-off, and sheds light on the self-mythologizing and strange beliefs of a man who nonetheless gifted popular culture one if its most enduring narratives
