- but I love you."

- Yeah.

And I was like, "Oh, that's my family."


I understand

everything from "Star Trek."

- Yes.

- You know, it's funny

because I wasn't allowed to watch TV

when "Star Trek" was on the air.

My parents wouldn't let me watch it.

So I snuck downstairs

and I turned on the TV.

And, uh, that was my first...

The first time I saw the show.

I think it was, um, "This

Side of Paradise"

- was the episode.

- Oh.

And you could tell that

whoever was doing the show

was a science fiction fan.

"Star Trek" begins

as the brainchild of one man,

Gene Roddenberry, a

former World War II pilot

and policeman turned screenwriter.

His first television

series premieres in 1963,

and features a few faces that

will soon become familiar

to "Trek" fans.

He was a big man, enthusiastic.

He really, really

loved producing a show,

which he had never done before.

He created "The Lieutenant."

[patriotic music]

It was "The Lieutenant." It

was his first big TV show.

And he cast me.

I had acted in an episode of

a series called "The Lieutenant"

that was produced by Gene Roddenberry.

My agent called me and

said, "He's interested in you

for a science fiction

pilot that he's gonna produce.

"The Lieutenant"

runs for just one season,

but Roddenberry's

already working on a bigger idea.

In 1964, he begins

pitching a series about a starship

with a multi-ethnic crew.

I had worked for him

directly when his secretary was ill.

And he knew that I had sold some things

that I wanted to be a

writer, a full-time writer.

And he called me into

his office and said,

"What do you think of

this?" And he showed me

about a 10-12 page piece that

was called "Star Trek."

- Well, he had done...

- both:
"The Lieutenant."
