1-24 American Baptist Convention letter to Gene Roddenberry - April 15, 1959

Season 1 of The Trek Files wraps up with our oldest document yet! As Gene Roddenberry was writing for “Have Gun - Will Travel,” he got the attention of an unlikely awards committee: the American Baptist Convention. Having seen a handful of Gene’s episodes, the committee reached out to recognize his work as “presenting the Christian message” to TV viewers. How would a pre-Star Trek Gene have reacted? Your Trek Files host Larry Nemecek and guest co-host John Champion discuss in this week’s show! Read the original document: http://facebook.com/thetrekfiles
