They took it to CBS, which ultimately passed on it.
The duo later learned that CBS had been eager to find out about Star Trek because it had a science fiction series in development—Lost in Space.
Roddenberry was asked to write a series called Riverboat, set in 1860s Mississippi.
When he discovered that the producers wanted no black people on the show, he argued so much with them that he lost the job.
During the production of the series, Roddenberry clashed regularly with the Department of Defense over potential plots. Roddenberry was already working on a new series idea.
In 1985, he became the first TV writer with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he was later inducted by both the Science Fiction Hall of Fame and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame.
In 1964, Roddenberry created Star Trek, which premiered in 1966 and ran for three seasons before being canceled.
He then worked on other projects, including a string of failed television pilots.
The syndication of Star Trek led to its growing popularity; this, in turn, resulted in the Star Trek feature films, on which Roddenberry continued to produce and consult.
In 1987, the sequel series Star Trek: The Next Generation began airing on television in first-run syndication; Roddenberry was heavily involved in the initial development of the series, but took a less active role after the first season due to ill health.
Roddenberry and Katz next took the idea to Mort Werner at NBC, The network funded three story ideas, and selected "The Menagerie", which was later known as "The Cage", to be made into a pilot.
