Thanks for the insightful response Joachim!

However, I must admit my reference, to Roddenberry resourcing
then prominent ufologists, was half in jest.

I does make a kind of sense though that Roddenberry readily
contacted the channelling contactees, given they were the more
public in their pronouncements at the time.

But being the backward-thinking boor that I am, I'm not yet
ready to concede a Shatnerian and Spockian society!
