Watching Gene’s Back Catalog

This is a complete list of shows for which Gene Roddenberry wrote that are commercially available either as streaming or physical media. Since the streaming landscape is in a state of near-constant flux, streaming rights change hands from time to time. I’ll try to keep this list as current as possible.
