Aw shucks! That’s so nice of you to say!
Roddenberry Productions and the Roddenberry Family are strong supporters of the “International Federation of Trekkers”. My father before me was a friend to Russ Haslage and IFT’s membership.”
I personally feel that “International Federation of Trekkers” represents and upholds the philosophies that are found in the core of Star Trek’s stories. As a result, I consider them to be ambassadors to the Roddenberry name and my father’s vision of a greater future for all life on earth.”Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, Jr.
The core values of Star Trek and the driving vision of Gene Roddenberry are to build a healthy, creative and tolerant society with each individual taking active responsibility. This I have seen vibrantly alive in the work of IFT. Their many activities in support of charities, community and social services are exemplars of this ideals. Their vast global network of ships and alliances are living demonstrations of the ideal of ‘infinite diversity in infinite combinations.’ Their spirit of adventure combined with camaraderie reflects the same qualities Gene infused into Starfleet. The Roddenberry ideals continue to trek on with the IFT.”George Takei
Oh stop! You’re making us blush.
Much applause to the IFT and its members for keeping alive the spirit of “Star Trek” and holding to the ideas and ideals of its creator, Gene Roddenberry. May they continue to “boldly go” into a long and prosperous future!”Susan Sackett
Back in the early sixties, Gene Roddenberry produced a piece of television entertainment that was more than just another show. It was a blueprint for an optimistic future that we can all have, given the ideals of that show: STAR TREK.
IFT is working to foster those ideals toward the positive lifestyle that Gene envisioned and I salute them for their efforts and dedication.”Andrew Probert
