Celebrating the Birth . . . Gene Roddenberry.

Eugene Wesley "Gene" Roddenberry (August 19, 1921 – October 24, 1991)
     Gene Roddenberry is best known as the creator of the Star Trek universe. And due to Star Trek's popularity, there is little to say.  Everyone is familiar with at least one series or movie (or book, or comic book, or video game, etc) and there have been numerous, and often contradictory Roddenberry biographies.  Instead, let's just remember The Great Bird of the Galaxy and enjoy an episode or two from his universe.  Note the professional shows are all on and I don't know if they will stream worldwide.  If the fanfilms are not working at their sites, most will be available on YouTube.
