Stardate 01.22.2010: The son of STAR TREK creator GENE RODDENBERRY has teamed up with movie director RON HOWARD to bring one of his late father's forgotten TV projects back to the small screen. Rod Roddenberry has struck a deal with Howard's Imagine TV company to develop The Questor Tapes into a new show. The script, about a robot with incomplete memory tapes who is searching for his creator, was originally written by Roddenberry as a 13-episode TV series, but after disagreements with bosses at America's NBC network the sci-fi mogul abandoned the project. The production eventually aired as a one-off small screen movie in 1974 - and now Roddenberry's son is hoping to bring The Questor Tapes back to life to honour his dad's memory. "My father always felt that Questor was the one that got away. He believed that the show had the potential to be bigger than Star Trek."
MAJEL BARRETT-RODDENBERRY, the actress widow of STAR TREK creator GENE RODDENBERRY, died at the age of 76. She lost her battle with leukaemia at her Bel-Air, California home on Thursday (Dec.18.2008). Her son Rod was by her side, reports Access Hollywood. She guest-starred in TV shows Bonanza, Leave it to Beaver, and The Lucy Show during her acting career - but she will be best remembered for her association with Star Trek. The actress has played a part in every incarnation of the sci-fi show since it premiered in 1966, and only recently completed voiceover work as the voice of the Starship Enterprise in the new J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie. A public memorial took place January 2009. Husband Gene Roddenberry (70) died in 1991

Can you name two Star Trek movies directed by Nimoy? Or the one about Spock's brother? Or what went wrong with the first man to come back from Venus? These and other questions are answered on MonsterVision host segments for Cold Hands, Warm Heart / I, Robot, the Outer Limits episodes that starred William Shatner & Leonard Nimoy
After Star Trek went off the air, Gene Roddenberry tried some other ideas as movie/pilots including The Questor Tapes (1974, an android sent to save Earth from itself) and two pilot/movies about a post-apocalyptic Earth called "Genesis II" (1973, starring Alex Cord of Airwolf) and "Planet Earth" (1974, starring John Saxon of Enter The Dragon), then the horror/suspense SPECTRE (1977, starring Robert Culp and an evil druid spirit)
Too weird? Well, did you know that in the late 1950s, Gene was head writer for the western series "Have Gun Will Travel"? At least 2 episodes were later redone as S.T. episodes: Monster of Moon Ridge became Devil In The Dark, and his version of Shakespeare's Helen Of Troy/Taming Of The Shrew became a Calamity Jane episode, then ST episode Elaan Of Troyius

Note: after some delays, the ashes of James Doohan (Scotty) were launched on April 28, 2007, in New Mexico. The remains of 200 people will be aboard the rocket including Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper, at a cost of $495 each. That's less than the cost of a conventional funeral, as noted 5 years earlier in episode #309 of Ripley's Believe It Or Not!
