Lastly, anyone else bothered by calling the "real" Spock "Spock Prime"?
Dan Madsen: How do you think your dad would feel about the new JJ Abrams Star Trek film?
Eugene Roddenberry, Jr.: I think he would love it. I think he would put his arm around JJ and hand over the keys, so to speak. He would say, "This baby is yours." You had it in an interview you did with my father in your magazine, the Star Trek Communicator, where my father said, in essence, "I look forward to the next young writer who will come up and take steps beyond what I have done to create the next Star Trek and make it better." That was the true humble nature of him. I think, in his older years, he was more than happy to pass on the torch to someone who was young, smart and able to take the next steps with it. I think JJ would be that guy. I think if my father had been able to get to know JJ Abrams he would have gladly given the reins of Star Trek to him.
