TrekToday - Majel Roddenberry Interview

Majel Roddenberry Interview

Don Lipper of Space.com has posted an extensive interview with Majel Barrett Roddenberry (or Great Hen of the Galaxy as Don calls her). Majel talks about bringing Earth: Final Conflict and Andromeda to the small screen, in addition to Gene's apparently rather messy archives and her involvement (or lack there of) in Star Trek.

SPACE.com: Have you been overseeing any of the production on Andromeda or have you been pretty much hands off?

MBR: I've been awful lot of hands off on that. We've got people up there who are absolutely capable of taking care of all the day-by-day stuff that goes by. Kevin [Sorbo] is there and I would trust Kevin with my life, so I don't see any need to go any further.

SPACE.com: What about the Star Trek franchise? What's your involvement with that these days?

MBR: I have absolutely nothing to do with the Star Trek franchise.

SPACE.com: So Paramount hasn't spoken to you about the next series at all?

MBR: No, they haven't.

SPACE.com: You know that George Takei is heading up the Excelsior campaign?

MBR: Yeah, he has been for many years.

SPACE.com: Right. What do you think about Excelsior as the next series?

MBR: I don't see it as a real strong possibility myself, but more power to him.
