LeVar Burton: Star Trek Into Darkness Is Missing Gene Roddenberry

The folks over at TMZ recently caught up with TNG star LeVar Burton. Discussing Star Trek Into Darkness, Burton said he’s seen the film twice already and remarked that it was missing something very important — the vision of Gene Roddenberry.

At the end of the movie I really care about what happens to the characters, but I’m pretty much missing Gene Roddenberry in J.J.’s interpretation. And at the end of the day, that’s just not OK for me.

The reporter remarked that Burton’s addition to the cast would have made for a better film. To which he replied:

They don’t need me, they just need Gene.

Check out the video below.

    I doubt if any of the new execs even know who Gene Roddenberry was.
