Inhaltsangabe: A no-holds-barred look at the complex and driven visionary who created Star Trek gives a backstage portrait based on inside sources that reveals the whole man, alcoholic, self-promoting, womanizing, yet intensely creative.
From Publishers Weekly:
According to Engel ( Rod Serling ), Roddenberry, who died in 1991, is a seminal figure of our time ("His indirect impact on aspects of popular culture . . . has been eclipsed, arguably, only by Elvis Presley"), creator of one of the most enduring of TV and film series and a figure of adulation to countless "Trekkies." Yet in this well-researched biography, the author offers a critical view of a man who, he claims, was a mediocre writer who bullied as well as charmed top science-fiction authors into working for him while never publicly acknowledging his debt to them. Roddenberry led a rough-and-tumble early life, flying a B-17 bomber during WW II and serving with the Los Angeles Police Department for five years before turning to TV-writing for series like Have Gun, Will Travel . In 1964, he wrote a treatment for what he called "Wagon Train in the Sky," with Star Trek debuting in the fall of 1966. The series lost money for its entire three-year run. Granted new life through syndication, however, Star Trek grew into a cult phenomenon, inspiring sequels and spin-offs. Meanwhile, despite the myth of his creative genius, Roddenberry apparently became "a willing one-trick pony," an alcoholic and sex-obsessed tyrant: a prime example of a case in which, as Engel entitles the final chapter of his hard-hitting book, "The Clothes Have No Emperor."
