Science is celebrating the 45th anniversary of Star Trek by delving into the life of its creator, Gene Roddenberry, with Trek Nation. This two-hour tribute, Wednesday at 8pm ET/PT, follows Gene’s son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father’s singular vision of the future. Through interviews with fans, including George Lucas, J.J. Abrams and Seth MacFarlane, Trek Nation chronicles a son’s journey to discover his father’s work and draws on hours of exclusive footage, including never-before-seen home movies from the Roddenberry family.
