His career with Screen Gems ended in late ,  and shortly afterward, he had issues with his old friend Erle Stanley Gardner. As the time was not right for science fiction, he began work on The Lieutenant for Arena Productions. The show set a new ratings record for that time slot. The Lieutenant was produced with the co-operation of the Pentagon , which allowed them to film at an actual Marine base. During the production of the series, Roddenberry clashed regularly with the Department of Defense over potential plots. Roddenberry was already working on a new series idea.
This included his ship location from Hawaii Passage and added a Horatio Hornblower character, plus the multiracial crew from his airship idea. He decided to write it as science fiction, and by March 11, , he brought together a page pitch. On April 24, he sent three copies and two dollars to the Writers Guild of America to register his series. He called it Star Trek. His first was a half-hour pilot called Police Story not to be confused with the anthology series created by Joseph Wambaugh , which was not picked up by the networks.
They took it to CBS, which ultimately passed on it. The duo later learned that CBS had been eager to find out about Star Trek because it had a science fiction series in development— Lost in Space. Roddenberry and Katz next took the idea to Mort Werner at NBC,  this time downplaying the science fiction elements and highlighting the links to Gunsmoke and Wagon Train. The other two later became episodes of the series. While most of the money for the pilot came from NBC, the remaining costs were covered by Desilu. Fontana , as his assistant. They had worked together previously on The Lieutenant, and she had eight script credits to her name.
Roddenberry and Barrett had begun an affair by the early days of Star Trek ,  and he specifically wrote the part of the character Number One in the pilot with her in mind; no other actresses were considered for the role. Barrett suggested Nimoy for the part of Spock. He had worked with both Roddenberry and Barrett on The Lieutenant , and once Roddenberry remembered the thin features of the actor, he did not consider anyone else for the part.
The episode failed to impress test audiences,  and after the executives became hesitant, Katz offered to make a second pilot. On March 26, , NBC ordered a new episode.

NBC selected the last one, leading to later rumors that Peeples created Star Trek , something he has always denied. In December, he decided to write lyrics to the Star Trek theme; this angered the theme's composer, Alexander Courage , as it meant that royalties would be split between them. In February , NBC informed Desilu that they were buying Star Trek and that it would be included in the fall television schedule.
On May 24, the first episode of the Star Trek series went into production;  Desilu was contracted to deliver 13 episodes. After the episode was shown, he received a standing ovation. Not wanting to lose a potential source of income, Ellison agreed and also sought the help of other writers who also wanted to avoid losing potential income. An article in the Chicago Tribune quoted studio executives as stating that the letter-writing campaign had been wasted because they had already been planning to renew Star Trek. Roddenberry often rewrote submitted scripts, although he did not always take credit for these.
The Guild ruled in his favor over John D. Black , the complainant. As the second season was drawing to a close, Roddenberry once again faced the threat of cancellation. He enlisted the help of Asimov,  and even encouraged a student-led protest march on NBC. On January 8, , a thousand students from 20 different schools across the country marched on the studio. Trimble later noted that this campaign of writing to fans who had written to Desilu about the show, urging them to write NBC, had created an organized Star Trek fandom.
Realizing the show could not survive in that time slot and burned out from arguments with the network, Roddenberry resigned from the day-to-day running of Star Trek , although he continued to be credited as executive producer. Roddenberry explained to Whitfield: "I had to get some money somewhere. I'm sure not going to get it from the profits of Star Trek.
Justman observed that Whitfield never regretted his deal with Roddenberry, since it gave him "the opportunity to become the first chronicler of television's successful unsuccessful series. Having stepped aside from the majority of his Star Trek duties, Roddenberry sought instead to create a film based on Asimov's " I, Robot " and also began work on a Tarzan script for National General Pictures. A similar but much smaller letter-writing campaign followed news of the cancellation.
Following the cancellation of Star Trek, Roddenberry felt typecast as a producer of science fiction, despite his background in Westerns and police stories. Variety was unimpressed: "Whatever substance was in the original [novel by Francis Pollini] or screen concept has been plowed under, leaving only superficial, one-joke results. In and , Roddenberry made a comeback to science fiction, selling ideas for four new series to a variety of networks.
He had hoped to recreate the success of Star Trek without "doing another space-hopping show. Roddenberry was asked to produce four more scripts for episodes, but before production could begin again, CBS aired the film Planet of the Apes. It was watched by an even greater audience than Genesis II. CBS scrapped Genesis II and replaced it with a television series based on the film;  the results were disastrous from a ratings standpoint, and Planet of the Apes was quickly canceled.

Coon, who was in failing health at the time. NBC ordered 16 episodes, and tentatively scheduled the series to follow The Rockford Files on Friday nights;  the pilot launched on January 23, ,  to positive critical response, but Roddenberry balked at the substantial changes requested by the network and left the project, leading to its immediate cancellation. The pilot was aired on April 23, While Roddenberry wanted to create something that could feasibly exist in the future, the network wanted stereotypical science-fiction women and were unhappy when that was not delivered.

By the time the work on the script was complete, though, those who had approved the project had left Fox and their replacements were not interested in the project. A similar fate was faced by Tribunes, a science-fiction police series, which Roddenberry attempted to get off the ground between and He gave up after four years;  the series never even reached the pilot stage.
The pilot Spectre , Roddenberry's attempt to create an occult detective duo similar to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson ,  was released as a television movie within the United States and received a limited theatrical release in the United Kingdom. Lou Scheimer approached Paramount in about creating an animated Star Trek series.
Roddenberry had some difficulties with the cast. To save money, he sought not to hire George Takei and Nichelle Nichols. He neglected to inform Leonard Nimoy of this and instead, in an effort to get him to sign on, told him that he was the only member of the main cast not returning. After Nimoy discovered the deception, he demanded that Takei and Nichols play Sulu and Uhura when their characters appeared on screen; Roddenberry acquiesced.
He had been promised five full seasons of the new show, but ultimately, only one and a half were produced. However, the groundswell of vociferous fan support 6, attended the second New York Star Trek convention in and 15, attended in , eclipsing the 4, attendees at the 32nd World Science Fiction Convention in led Paramount to hire Roddenberry to create and produce a feature film based on the franchise in May Black's opinion was that their ideas were never "big enough" for the studio, even when one scenario involved the end of the universe. Adjusted for inflation , it was the third-highest grossing Star Trek movie, with the film coming in first and the film second.
In , Roddenberry submitted a treatment for a proposed sequel about the crew preventing the alien Klingons from thwarting the assassination of John F. Mindful of the tumult that suffused the production of Star Trek: The Motion Picture , Paramount rejected the proposal. After he was replaced on the project by television producer Harve Bennett , Roddenberry was named " executive consultant " for the project, a position he retained for all subsequent Star Trek franchise films produced during his lifetime.
Under this arrangement, he was compensated with a producer's fee and a percentage of the net profits of the film in exchange for proffering non-binding story notes and corresponding with the fan community; much to his ongoing chagrin, these memos were largely disregarded by Bennett and other producers. Roddenberry was involved in creating the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation , which premiered with " Encounter at Farpoint " on September 28, However, Paramount was already concerned about the original cast not returning, and fearing fan reaction if Roddenberry was not involved, agreed to his demand for control of the show.
According to producer Rick Berman , Roddenberry's involvement in The Next Generation "diminished greatly" after the first season,  but the nature of his increasingly peripheral role was not disclosed because of the value of his name to fans. Although commercially successful from its inception, the series was initially marred by Writers Guild of America grievances from Fontana and Gerrold, both of whom left the series under acrimonious circumstances;  frequent turnover among the writing staff 24 staff writers left the show during its first three seasons, triple the average attrition rate for such series ;  and allegations that longtime Roddenberry attorney Leonard Maizlish had become the producer's "point man and proxy",  ghostwriting memos, sitting in on meetings, and contributing to scripts despite not being on staff.
Creatively, Meyer clashed with Roddenberry, who felt that having the Enterprise crew hold prejudices against the Klingons did not fit with his view of the universe. Meyer described a meeting with Roddenberry he later regretted, saying:. His guys were lined up on one side of the room, and my guys were lined up on the other side of the room, and this was not a meeting in which I felt I'd behaved very well, very diplomatically. I came out of it feeling not very good, and I've not felt good about it ever since.
He was not well, and maybe there were more tactful ways of dealing with it, because at the end of the day, I was going to go out and make the movie. I didn't have to take him on. Not my finest hour. In Joel Engel's biography, Gene Roddenberry: The Myth and the Man Behind Star Trek , he states that Roddenberry watched The Undiscovered Country alongside the producers of the film at a private screening two days before his death, and told them they had done a "good job".
Attempts to complete the project by Walter Koenig ,  Susan Sackett , Fred Bronson,  and Michael Jan Friedman have proven to be unfeasible for a variety of legal and structural reasons. Barrett and he had an apartment together by the opening weeks of Star Trek. He moved out of the family home on August 9, , two weeks after the marriage of his daughter Darleen. Roddenberry was raised a Southern Baptist ;  however, as an adult, he rejected religion, and considered himself a humanist. Gunn of the National Council of Churches regarding the application of Christian teachings in television series.
However, Gunn stopped replying after Roddenberry wrote in a letter: "But you must understand that I am a complete pagan, and consume enormous amounts of bread, having found the Word more spice than nourishment, so I am interested in a statement couched in dollars and cents of what this means to the Roddenberry treasury. Roddenberry said of Christianity , "How can I take seriously a God-image that requires that I prostrate myself every seven days and praise it? That sounds to me like a very insecure personality.
I believe in a kind of God. It's just not other people's God. I reject religion. I accept the notion of God. An art form. While he agreed that both parties were wrong in their use of violence, he said that the actions of both were undertaken because of their strong religious beliefs. According to Ronald D. Moore , Roddenberry "felt very strongly that contemporary Earth religions would be gone by the 23rd century".
In the late s, Roddenberry was likely afflicted by the first manifestations of cerebral vascular disease and encephalopathy as a result of his longstanding recreational use of legal and illicit drugs, including alcohol , methaqualone ,  methylphenidate , Dexamyl , and cocaine which he had used regularly since the production of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Following a stroke at a family reunion in Tallahassee, Florida , in September ,  Roddenberry's health declined further, ultimately requiring him to use a wheelchair.
It also caused problems with the sight in his right eye and he found communicating in full sentences difficult. Ronald Rich. As they reached the fifth floor, he began struggling for breath, and was wheeled into the doctor's office, where he was reclined and a nurse administered oxygen. Barrett was sent for. Upon her arrival, she held Roddenberry while encouraging him to breathe.
He had a cardiopulmonary arrest , and he died in the doctor's office shortly afterwards. The funeral was arranged for November 1, with the public invited to the memorial service at the Hall of Liberty, within the Forest Lawn Memorial Park , in Hollywood Hills. More than Star Trek fans attended, and stood in the balcony section of the hall, while the invited guests were on the floor level.
