Roddenberry on Patrol (2003) Poster

A very funny short film that parodies Gene Roddenberry's quest to find Star Trek. On the way he encounters several people who help him create the science fiction TV show we all know and love.

| A treat for Trekkers
This short film (way too short) winks at the origin of Star Trek, suggesting Gene Roddenberry was helped out of his writer's block by the encounters he had as a motorcycle cop. Many many cameos from stars from various series keep the viewer on the edge of their seat watching for subtle and not-so-subtle elements. My biggest complaint is all the potential material that doesn't make it into the show ... but then it would be several hours long!

The actor portraying the Great Bird bears a good resemblance to him, though Roddenberry's charm and humor aren't expressed perhaps as well as they could be. But it's clear this is a labor of love and must have been enjoyable to produce. Director Tim Russ and other Trek veterans are clearly having a blast playing it out.

Afterwards make sure to check out the outtakes as well. All in all a very funny effort worth the time to track down.
