The Only Planet of Choice

Gene Roddenberry And The Council of Nine


"In a way, The Enterprise and the optimistic future in which it exists might be thought of as a reminder of what we can achieve when we really try."
- Gene Roddenberry, 1991

Critics of individuals who support The Ashtar Command on this planet have accused them of "playing Star Trek." What if they found out that the actors on "Star Trek" were actually playing Ashtar Command? Have you ever noticed that the Star Trek insignia looks like the letter "A?"

It is documented in The Only Planet of Choice, compiled by Phyllis V. Schlemmer and Palden Jenkins (Bath, England: Gateway Books, 1993), that Gene Roddenberry attended channelling sessions led by Ms. Schlemmer and "Tom" of the "Council of Nine"

"Council of Nine: Tribunal Teachers governing our immediate super-galactic and galactic region, subject to change in evolving 'new programs' of the Father's kingdom.). It has been alluded to from other sources that Roddenberry had been a Commander or received his inspiration from sitting in on channelling sessions."

The following is an exerpt from The Only Planet of Choice (p. 95-99)

Gene: There's a question that I cannot avoid asking: why do you not give strong and definite signs of your existence or proximity, on top of approaching humanity by indirect means such as these channelings, or other ways? Obviously, you have your reasons, but this question does matter to me.

Tom: It is of great importance for you to understand that your governments of your world of Earth have refused to publicly believe, or convey to the people, our existence. If there were an attempt by civilisations to land upon Planet Earth in a mass situation, which in truth will come to pass in the course of time, the people upon Planet Earth would panic, for they have not the understanding, the knowledge, that we would mean no harm tothem.......

...It is important that there is no panic amongst those that exist on the Planet Earth: that the knowledge be brought to them in gentleness, that those of the Twenty-Four civilisations mean no harm to them. This is of great importance, for if there were panic, humans may then attempt to end their own life, and also the lives of their families and neighbors, which would not serve any purpose. The governments of your world have refused to accept publicity that there are others of a higher intelligence , and in truth of a more spiritual intelligence than those that exist upon the planet Earth.

We need to convey to the people that there are others that mean them no harm, but have an interest in saving Planet Earth....We do not come to control, we do not come to hold in bondage, we will come with love and patience and understanding - but since there is the denial of our existence, how can those of Planet Earth accept that the civilisations of Altea, Hoova, Ashan, and the rest of the Twenty-Four mean well?

Gene: I have another question that I think people will wonder about: on previous tapes of your conversations I heard you explain that you constantly know the thoughts of either all of us or those who communicate with you, am I correct in this assumption?

Tom: If we have the wish to help you, yes. But we wish you to understand that we do not invade the mind, we do not control the will, we do not interfere with freedom: we do not interfere. It would not be of service......they may have the abilities within them, but it would not benefit Planet Earth to use them - nor would it benefit them. That would be an invasion of a soul.

Gene: I have been most impressed by the communications, the expressions and atmosphere that surround all the people here, but I do have some difficulties in understanding why, if you are in the minds of humans at times, and your representatives have visited Earth, and you have a knowledge of human affairs.... I find it difficult to understand how you have difficulty speaking with us, and understanding our basic colloquial English? Could you help me with that?

Tom: We will explain that. The Civilisations have indeed visited Earth, but do you understand that when you have communication with your mind, it is not necessary to have words? It is difficult from where we are to give explanations in your words. We have concepts that cannot be explained in your language, for you do not have the words to explain.

If you could read our mind...if we could communicate with your mind in the essence of pure telepathy, then we could convey to you what we are trying to transmit....

Gene: Thank you. You mentioned that at some stage there might be a large-scale landing of the civilisations. I think the next questions involve who and where, how and why; the first such question most people would ask is 'how?' In other words what method of transportation would be used in such a landing: are we referring to physical vehicles?

Tom: Yes. They would be in the nature of a physical vehicle. If you have the desire to go and touch it, as you have with an automobile, you would be able to touch it.

Gene: Can you tell me anything about the relative size and shape and so on? Will they hold a large number of people, or....

Tom: There would be vehicles of different sizes and different designs. There would be some with the appearence of a glass top, but it is not in truth a top, it will just have an appearence... There will also be those that will remain in your atmosphere that are very large, that will then send our smaller ones... you have, upon your oceans, carriers that send out ships that fly, is that not so?

Gene: That is correct.

Tom: It would be similar, but instead of being upon your oceans, it will be in your sky.

Gene: You're saying that smaller craft will exit and come down to Earth from this carrier craft?

Tom: Yes. There will also be those that have the appearance of what you call saucers. There will be those that are pointed, as with a "V."

Gene: Will these vehicles pass through the time dimension, or another dimension in order to arrive here at Earth?

Tom: The intelligences that exist in the civilisations have the ability to come into your dimension - they have the technology, yes.

Gene: A very common Earth question would be how these vehicles are powered? By what method?

Tom: It resembles the reversal of a spinning top.

Gene: Would these vehicles remain on Earth after such a landing, and would humans be permitted to inspect them?

Tom: They would have permission to visit the interior. The craft woudl remain for a period of time. Not a great length of time - not for years, for example.

Gene: Because of many stories we have of flying saucers, people will be intersted to know if humans would be permitted to travel in any of these vehicles?

Tom: It would be necessary, before they could travel in a vehicle, to have a vehicle around them.

Gene: Does this mean that the atmosphere within your vehicles will be different, or that the stress of the movement would be dangerous?

Tom: The stress of the movement. It would be possible to move within your Earth atmosphere, but to take them out would require another vehicle inside a vehicle, but it could be done.

Gene: Landings would undoubtedly be judged by humans and governments in a variety of ways, which includes the almost certianty that some would view your landings as a threat. Do you have a method of defending yourself from attack?

Tom? We wish you to know that we are talking about civilisations, not us, the Council of Nine. We do not need to manifest in the physical.

There would be a method to stop people from attempting to destroy those of the civilisations. It would be done in love and gentleness. Those of the civilisations that are in service to us will not attempt to destroy, nore harm in any manner, any physical being on Planet Earth. We will have a way of preventing them from attempting to destroy us. But we would wish not to come without giving some prior knowledge, for otherwise people would begin to believe that we would seek to control them. We have not the desire nor the need to control we come only to benefit.

If an Altean were to appear at an entrance of his vehicle, and were stepping onto Planet Earth, and if there were a group that attempted to destroy that Altean, he has only to hold out his hand in an upright manner, and not in great extension, to bring calmness, and also to render them into a state in which they would not have the desire to harm, and would put down their weapons. Hoovids would operate in a different manner: if they were in the same situation, and they cam out and raised their arms, those humans with weapons would become totally stationary for a period of time.

So there are different methods. But none of these methods would harm a physical being. Do you understand?

Gene: Yes, I understand, and I certainly understand why you would not want to land showing force, because this would create great fear.
