Meetup Description: Susan Sackett: Humanism in Star Trek
(food service begins at 5:00 pm speaker starts at 6:00)
Susan Sackett was personal executive assistant to Gene Roddenberry, creator of the television legend Star Trek, for over 17 years until his death in October 1991. She also served as his production assistant on the first Star Trek film and worked closely with him on the next five Star Trek movies. In addition, she served as Production Associate during the first five seasons of the television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Susan and her writing partner, Fred Bronson sold several stories and a teleplay to that series, including the popular episodes Manage A Troi and The Game.
While working full time as Roddenberry's assistant, Susan wrote three books about Star Trek: Letters to Star Trek, Star Trek Speaks! (with co-authors Fred and Stan Goldstein) and The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, with co-author Gene Roddenberry.
Another book, Star Trek: The First 25 Years, co-authored with Gene Roddenberry, was not published but became the basis of the 1994 book, Star Trek: Where No One Has Gone Before: A History in Pictures, by J. M. Dillard. Susan???s Star Trek memoir, Inside Trek, was published in 2002.
It was Gene Roddenberry who introduced Susan to humanism which is of paramount interest in her life. She has been president of the Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix since 2000. Thanks to her efforts, her chapter received ???Chapter of the Year??� from the American Humanist Association for 2001. For more information go to: www.insidetrek.com
