Happy Birthday, Great Bird of the Galaxy!
Gene Roddenberry, the creator of the American Epic (more commonly known as Star Trek), known far and wide to his fans as "The Great Bird of the Galaxy," would have been 92 today. Star Trek took the highest ideals of America (both the US and Canada), and wrote them larger than life, while not doing so in a naive manner that would have been blind to the faults that existed at the time (some of which still unfortunately persist). He gave us a vision of what we could become, if we strive for the realization of those ideals. Gene Roddenberry at Memory Alpha.
RIP, o Great Bird of the Galaxy. Your memory is cherished in the hearts of many.
