New "Trek Nation" Trailer Featuring Nichelle Nichols & George Lucas
The long awaited release of the Star Trek documentary Trek Nation is getting closer and if you're like me, you can't wait. Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry has been working on the film for some time now and from what we've seen and heard, it's been an amazing journey for him. In the most recent trailer, exclusively released to the Perez Hilton website, Rod talks about his father Gene & the Trek legacy; "It wasn't until after he passed away that I realized that Star Trek actually touched people." The new clip also shows the lovely Nichelle Nichols and clips of an interview with Star Wars creator George Lucas.
Rod continues in a recent interview with Mogul Media TV; "Star Trek has been around for 45 years now because of it's philosophy... That's why so many people have connected to it. It talks about the greater good, where we all reach beyond our perceived limitations, where we no longer fear difference, we thirst and crave for it."
Like so many of you out there, that's one of the reasons we love Star Trek. Gene's philosophy was always hopeful and bright for humankind. We're also really looking forward to the release of Trek Nation. Be sure to check out November 30th on Science.
