Celebrating A Century of the Great Bird of the Galaxy

On this special edition of EMExlclusives, today marks the 100th Birthday of a man who would change the way we dreamt about our future. Born on this day, one hundred years ago in El Paso, Texas – this visionary would launch a new sci-fi series on NBC nearly fifty-five years that taken audiences to strange new worlds and seek out new civilizations. With his unique vision, we still boldly go into the wonderful universe that is Star Trek. The man – was Gene Roddenberry!

While Gene has left us nearly thirty years ago, his vision still lives on! This year, Star Trek is still going strong. Don’t believe me, ask the thousands of Trekkies who descended to Vegas for the annual Creation Con this past weekend or the one who waited for the premiere of the second season of Lower Decks. No matter who you are or where you are in the world, Star Trek is alive and well. With three current series (Discovery, Picard and Lower Decks), one coming soon to Nickelodeon (Prodigy) and one new series just wrapped shooting its first season (Strange New Worlds), Roddenberry Entertainment CEO/Executive Producer and son of the legendary creator, Rod Roddenberry joins me for this exclusive interview!

As we get ready to laugh and cry for the final sixty minutes of tonight’s series finale, I had the chance to talk with the Executive Producers and the amazingly talented cast of this wonderful sitcom!
