Remember - this is the guy who wrote lyrics to the TOS theme. Why? So he could get a cut of the music composers royalty check. To his credit, he didn't use the lyrics - but still.
I'm not judging, by the way - he had a great idea and he was entitled to make money off of it. But don't think just because he came up with a successful television/movie franchise that he was an altruistic hippie.
Gene liked the benjamins.
I'm sure he would have liked the Na'kuhl too... Season 1 of TOS was the most bizarre season of Star Trek in the History of Star Trek. Why? Because of Roddenberry.
I can haz joystick!
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
