Original 1978 motion picture shooting script, July 19, 1978, for the Paramount Pictures film, "Star Trek: The Motion Picture," 134 pages, 4to, bound with metal fasteners with the addition of a studio custom-designed cover. The title page indicates that the screenplay was written by Gene Roddenberry and Harold Livingston and the story by Alan Dean Foster. Paramount was able to secure the services of legendary film director Robert Wise ("The Sound of Music" and "West Side Story"), but the intellectual property and production credit is assigned to Roddenberry alone. As this project was masked in great secrecy, Paramount advises: "This script is not for publication or reproduction. No one is authorized to dispose of same. If lost or destroyed, please notify script department." Roddenberry has boldly signed on the cover, "To Ron - with best wishes for our mutual future in Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry." It is worthy to note that he has made the "G" in Gene very similar to the starship Enterprise. A small damp-stain on the "G" has blurred the ink; otherwise near fine condition.
American television screenwriter, producer, and futurist, best known for creating the American television science fiction series Star Trek.
