TNG-S5-Blu-ray-CoverWith the release of Star Trek The Next Generation Season 5 on Blu-ray this week, there is an all-new featurette “Requiem: A Remembrance of Star Trek: The Next Generation,” in which cast members, writers and producers reflect on the passing of legendary Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Known to the fans as The Great Bird of the Galaxy, Roddenberry died at age 70 on Oct. 24, 1991 — midway through ST:TNG’s fifth season — and that very sad day is remembered by actors Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis and producer-writers Rick Berman and Ron Moore, among many others.
