With the latest Star Trek film still doing very well in theatres, a new bit of information is coming on Star Trek’s past. Rod Roddenberry – son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry has secured over 500 hours of behind the scenes materials from various Star Trek incarnations. Yes, 500 hours. The materials range from interviews and behind the scenes documentaries down to quick bumpers and tidbits recorded for various promotional purposes. All the footage comes from the 1980’s through the present so it contains materials from Star Trek: The Next Generation through Enterprise.
Roddenberry is planning on organizing the massive collection of footage into a useable form to be released on DVD and possibly Blu-ray in the near future through Roddenberry Productions. I’m sure Star Trek fans will want to know more when details emerge.
