Trekkies get their own Roddenberry approved home on the web

Star Trek fans have a lot to look forward to in the next month or so as the latest film in the franchise comes to theaters. That movie is sure to be one of the most popular films of the summer, but the movie isn't all Star Trek fans have to look forward to. Roddenberry Entertainment has teamed up with Wikia to launch what is being called the ultimate Star Trek fan portal.

Roddenberry Entertainment and Wikia have announced a partnership to launch an online community portal called the Trek Initiative. The Initiative plans to give the millions of Star Trek fans around the world the place to talk and learn more about everything having to do with the Star Trek series and universe. The platform will also give fans a place to share local community projects and view exclusive content.

When the new Track The portal launches, it will have lots of Roddenberry content including a recording of a commencement speech that Gene Roddenberry gave in 1976. That particular speech spans 55 min. and during the speech, Roddenberry discussed the future of the human species and more. The portal will also offer fans images that haven't been seen before from Gene Roddenberry's personal life and from the set of various Star Trek movies and television episodes.

Gene Roddenberry's son, Rod Roddenberry, also promises to offer blog content for the site giving insight into the motivations behind the Trek Initiative and to give fans perspective from inside the family. The Trek Initiative will also serve as a gateway for all sorts of Star Trek content on the web offering links to various Star Trek websites.
