In September of 1986, during my undergraduate studies, I met Gene Roddenberry.
He seemed more excited to give a brief speech than I was to hear him give a brief speech.
He let the cat out of the bag about a new Star Trek TV show to air in 1987.
The show would feature faster ships, cooler Klingons, and spandex (no more velour).
Gene Roddenberry lives rent free in my head.
