I've always liked Bradbury.


Surprisingly the man was not a ST fan. He was unimpressed when touring the production studio and declined, unflateringly, when asked to write an episode.

Ray Bradbury was a visionary author, whose wide range included science fiction, horror and other genres.  His pioneering efforts expanded possibilities in many directions.


We will miss him greatly.

“”I don’t do that sort of thing,” Bradbury said. “”Those characters belong to them, and I can’t write about other people’s characters. Why should I? They’re not mine. They didn’t come out of my blood or my heart. I was offered a chance to write for Star Trek by Gene Roddenberry, and I couldn’t do it because they’re his characters, not mine. That’s what writing is all about – writing your soul out, not someone else’s soul.””


Gene Roddenberry asked me to be part of the "Star Trek" family as a writer 25 years ago. He showed me the pilot, and I looked at it and liked it but said at that time that I've never been able to adapt other people's characters--no matter how much I admire them. So, one of the sad things of my life is I was never able to participate in the love and joy that made "Star Trek" so special.

But, ironically, for many years people have thought I was Gene Roddenberry. It never bothered me because I loved him as a friend and admired him as a creator. I was always very proud every time a bunch of young people ran up to me and said, "Oh, Mr. Roddenberry, we all love you and we love 'Star Trek'." It happened all the time. I learned over the years to simply say, "Oh, I'm so glad that you like the show. I wrote it for you and I created it for you." And I let them run off thinking I was Mr. Roddenberry . . .


All the best,Wayne
