The next Greenhouse Studio is coming up soon! Our guest in June is Eugene ‘Rod’ Roddenberry, the producer of all things Star Trek! He’s going to share all his knowledge and experience as the producer of one of the most game-changing science fiction properties of all time. You don’t want to miss this incredible opportunity, so register now!
EUGENE ‘ROD’ RODDENBERRY, JR., is the guardian of the Roddenberry legacy and champions its timeless and universal ideals to new generations through creative and inspiriing science fiction productions, merchandise, publishing, underwater adventures and philanthropy. As the son of legendary science fiction producer, Gene Roddenberry, whose Star Trek series changed the face of television and continues to inspire today, Rod has followed in his father’s footsteps to be a catalyst in the creation of a world where humanity works together for the greater good.
Rod became CEO in 2001 of Roddenberry Entertainment, a science fiction leader with a tradition of groundbreaking entertainment. Roddenberry Entertainment builds on the best of Gene Roddenberry’s work and continues to pioneer the development of a multi-media portfolio of smart and provocative science fiction that incorporates graphic novels, comics, podcasts, television, and film projects, including the critically acclaimed Trek Nation, which debuted in 2011. Trek Nation is the documentation of Rod’s 10-year journey to explore his father’s life. The undertaking inspired him to fully embrace the vision Gene had for the world and invest himself in its future. One expression of this was the founding of The Roddenberry Foundation in 2010. The Roddenberry Foundation funds paradigm-changing solutions to critical global issues in science and technology, the environment, education and humanitarian advances.
The Roddenberry legacy is further lived out through the Roddenberry Dive Team which has recently evolved into Roddenberry Adventures. Much as his father navigated the universe through Star Trek, Rod founded and leads the adventure-based organization in its exploration of strange, new underwater words and strives to inspire stewardship of our oceans. A scuba diver since 1993, Rod holds a Divemaster certification and has participated or led more than 1,000 dives from exotic locations around the world.
