This iReport is part of an assignment:
San Diego Comic-Con 2012
Trek Nation - Comic-con 2012
I ran into Gene Roddenberry's son Rod and asked him a few questions. Check it out!
Trek Nation debuted in November 2011 on SCIENCE to acclaimed reviews
of Rod Roddenberry's tribute to his father, Gene Roddenberry. Through
exclusive footage and interviews with devoted fans, including George Lucas,
J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane and many notable Star Trek alumni, Trek Nation
chronicled a son's journey to discover his father and the creation that
helped define science fiction.
Trek Nation was just released internationally and over the last 2
weeks has debuted in Australia and India.
Trek Nation will make its theatrical premier tonight, July
12, at Birch North Park Theater and will be joined by Roddenberry's
innovative new short film, White Room:02B3.
Roddenberry will be releasing Trek Nation on DVD for the first time
when they make it available for purchase at their SDCC booth (#2543).
