Happy Birthday, Roberto Orci

Roberto Gaston Orci was born on July 20th 1973 in Mexico City, Mexico. Today TrekMovie takes a moment to wish a happy 36th birthday to this Trek fan who was so instrumental in the reinvigoration of the Star Trek franchise. We also have a little news on a new DVD of Bob and his writing partner Alex speaking at a recent WGA event.


Of all the members of Star Trek’s new ‘Supreme Court’, co-screenwriter and executive producer Roberto Orci is often noted to be the biggest Trekkie of the bunch. For TrekMovie community members this is self-evident from his regular visits to the comments section for both formal and informal feedback sessions with the fans here at TrekMovie. So he may be a big-time writer and producer, and one of the 50 Most Powerful Latino’s in Hollywood (according to the Hollywood Reporter), but to us he is Bob, a fellow Trekkie.

Happy Birthday Bob!

Live long and prosper Bob


Bob and Alex on DVD
Back in May we reported on a WGA event where Bob Orci and his writing partner Alex Kurtzman spoke and did some Q&A from fans and fellow writers. That event was recorded and is now available on DVD. Here is a new video clip with Bob and Alex talking about ‘committing to their universe.’

You can purchase a DVD of that WGA event from the WGA site.

Happy birthday, you talented sonuvagun. Your present is knowing that you got a chance to play in the wonderful sandbox we call Star Trek – and you built a very nice sandcastle for all of us to admire. Good for you!

Happy Birthday, Boborci!!!!

The time you were willing to spend interacting with all of us here during the development and filming of the movie was truly appreciated.

PS – The calories don’t count on your birthday so you can eat 3 pieces.

No message that I am aware of, except of course, happy birthday.

Happy Birthday Bob!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You the man Bob, You the man!

Happy Birthday Boborci!

I got you a big smile to wear to all your public appearances and interviews. I expect you to wear it from now on :-)

I’m a big Bob Orci fan, always enjoy reading/hearing interviews with him. There’s no question in my mind that Mr. Orci and his fellow “Supreme Court” compatriots were the right people to take over Star Trek.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Mr. Orci !!!
…”Live long , prosper , and keep on hangin’ and bangin’…”

Feliz Cumple Sr. Orci !!!
Saludos desde Mexico !!!

Happy Birthday Bob
You don’t look a day over 40

Many happy returns of the day, Roberto Orci – especially as, having a July birthday myself, you’re already helped given me one of the best birthdays ever – going to see Star Trek!

Yo Roberto! Happy Birthday and many more!

Feliz Cumpleanos Bob!

you da man, bob. this guy’s movies gross like 2 billion this year…

Bob, hope you’re having a good one. I wonder though, if you and Alex were in the middle of the festivities and say…a rich morsel of plot or dialogue wanders up there, would you both stop the party and get it down or risk it lost forever? Kiddin’ :). Live long and prosper.

Happy Birthday Bob! Now, get to work on the sequel! : D
