Space: the final frontier.
Introductory voiceover to StarTrek (1966).
A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away.Gene Roddenberry
Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow — it's not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans. No, ancient astronauts did not build the pyramids — human beings built them, because they're clever and they work hard. And Star Trek is about those things.Gene Roddenberry
The glory of creation is in its infinite diversity.Gene Roddenberry
The strength of a civilization is not measured by its ability to fight wars, but rather by its ability to prevent them.Gene Roddenberry
We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.Gene Roddenberry
To boldly go where no man has gone before.Gene Roddenberry
Beam us up, Mr Scott.Gene Roddenberry
I condemn false prophets, I condemn the effort to take away the power of rational decision, to drain people of their free will — and a hell of a lot of money in the bargain. Religions vary in their degree of idiocy, but I reject them all. For most people, religion is nothing more than a substitute for a malfunctioning brain.Gene Roddenberry
