The Daily Scrapbook 10/24/12

Here’s today’s flashback:  A shout out to Majel Barret-Roddenberry for giving Gene the idea for his TV Pilot ‘Spectre‘ — Sounded like a good idea but it’s funny that at the time CBS declined his pilot because ‘no one is interested in the supernatural’ –But Gene was ahead of his time by about 20 years (Remember the craze X-Files started?)  Now to be honest, I wasn’t into supernatural much either, but I bet this would have worked.  Also a quick blurb about the Star Trek phenomenon and a listing for another Roddenberry movie “The Questor Tapes”. Gene kept busy during the 70s, a shame none of his projects took off the way he hoped. (I think Genesis II would have made a great series).  And look at the babes in the photo upper left.   I bet these little starlets were thinking “Wow, we’re in a Gene Roddenberry picture! We’re gonna be stars!”  Dream on girls.
