5 Rodenberry's (and Gerrold's) Last Vision.Bowfinger | 04/09/2008 | See all Bowfinger's reviews (48)Forget your DS9's, Voyager's and Enterprise's. This was the last expression of Gene Rodenberry's (and let it not be forgotten, David Gerrold's) vision of Trek (The two men collaborated on the show's 'Bible'). The follow on's were nothing more than Rick Berman created extensions of a franchise, aimed at keeping the gravy train rolling. Sadly Rodenberry passed away during season 5 and he seemed to lose control of this series as much as he did the original crew's film franchise, but he (and Gerrold) conjured up this baby, regardless of whoever raised it. This and the original series are where the real Treks are. Of course the next movie is returning to the original series for inspiration. I rest my case. The crew are likable and the writing staff visibly get into their stride as time goes on. Recommended.
