Something that occurred to me while reading this thread ... Gene Roddenberry has a lot in common with the character of Zefram Cochrane. Both were driven by profit and self-gratification, but over the years they were both elevated to near-sainthood because of what they created.
Could Cochrane has been indirectly inspired by Roddenberry? Food for thought.
