Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s son Rod Roddenberry has been working on his "Trek Nation" documentary about his father and Trek fans for the last few years. Now Rod is taking one more pass to put the finishing touches on the project and he is looking to Star Trek fans to help him out. Find out how you can help below.
Help Rod finish "Trek Nation"
Rod Roddenberry has been on a journey of discovery for the last couple of years, talking to regular fans and famous personalities about the impact of father and his Star Trek creation. The result is "Trek Nation," a new documentary being produced by Roddenberry.
Now Rod says he is close to finishing it (again), but needs help. According to Rod he is in " desperate need of some archival footage." Co-producer Trevor Roth tells TrekMovie "there are few final holes we are trying to fill with the intent of bringing a more vivid picture to Star Trek’s history."
Specifically they are looking for the following materials for potential inclusion in the film.
- Video/Film Footage from 1970’s Conventions; guest speakers, the convention floor, etc.
- Behind the Scenes of TOS & TNG
- Letters, photos, news articles, TV film clips of the late 1960’s Letter Writing Campaign to Save Star Trek.
If you have any of the above, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have media to send they are asking if you can provide a lo-res version of the image or footage in your first email.

Hopefully once these final touches are put on this long-anticipated project Roddenberry can get a distribution deal and the fans can finally check out “Trek Nation.”
