Gene Roddenberry owns most stuff with all the ideas he and his team came up with on Star Trek.
That's not how it works. A patent is about the process of doing something, not the idea of doing something. This is why there is/was not a patent for "Fixing atmospheric Nitrogen", but there is one for the Frank-Caro process, and a different one for the Haber-Bosch process, because although they both fix atmospheric nitrogen, they do so in different methods.
Gene Roddenberry came up with no methods.
