The more I think about it, the more I think I've read more people who said that Gene Roddenberry was a bit of a nut and control freak than said that "he was a wonderful, sweet man." There are a lot of people who worked for him who feel they were ripped off and manipulated. Case in point, Harlan Ellison.

Harlan makes a really good case that Roddenberry was a real skunk and took the credit for a show that he abandoned before the beginning of the third season and took credit for aspects of Star Trek that he had nothing to do with. Harlan is a pain in the can and loves to stir the pot as it were that would make some people suspicious, but in my book he's always been the angry voice for fair play.
