The 1950s magazine Galaxy featured stories by Bradbury, as well as Robert Heinlein and Theodore Sturgeon. Herbert Rossoff believed that if he joined the magazine it would "complete" the lineup. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")
Background information Edit
An article in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner on the premiere of the original series quotes Roddenberry as saying that "a future script of the series will be written by Ray Badbury."
Ray Bradbury, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 100), wrote nostalgic tales, poetry and radio drama as well as screenplays for television and motion pictures. He was noted for his ability to capture the bizarre, the grotesque, and the sentimental.
