Gene Roddenberry Jacque Fresco

Recommended Posts

I've heard, that Gene Roddenberry when he created Star Trek took inspiration from Mr. Fresco ideas about resource-based economy and Venus Project. I wonder does those two visionaries ever meet in person.

Interesting I never know that.

The connection is obvious though for anyone who has watched enough Star Trek.

I've heard that Gene Roddenberry was impressed with the philosophy of Jacques Fresco, so he put in Star Trek.

Somewhere in the 1940s or 1950s Roddenberry and many others used to attend sessions hosted by Fresco when he lived in Los Feliz, Hollywood, and elsewhere around Los Angeles. Fresco also gave presentations to many organizations. Forrest Ackerman was a major admirer of Fresco's and, through Ackerman, many people met Fresco.
