Not since Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" have the networks had much luck with the unexplained. Their on-again, off-again romance with the supernatural, from "Ghost Story" to "Tales of the Unexpected," has come to naught. Still, as such movies as "The Exorcist" and "The Omen" proved, there is an audience hungry for stories of the occult. "Four years ago Sam Peeples and I wrote a story about Asmodeus, the prince of lechery, but it was turned down because I was told people weren't interested in the supernatural," said Gene Rodden-berry, who created "Star Trek." "Then along came 'The Exorcist' and 'The Omen' and I was asked if I had anything in the trunk. I never throw anything away." The result is "Spectre," a two-hour movie NBC airs a 9 p.m. Saturday. ABC has its own "Good Against Evil" at 9:30 p.m PDT Sunday, and NBC recently telecast "The Insurance Service FIRE-AUTO-LIFE UaUlity-BoiHt-Hearth Bedell & Kelson FREE INFORMATION 426-3700 426-4154 423-5742 206 RIVER ST. c O NEWS fi ABC NEWS O TO TELL THE TRUTH O MACNEIL LEHRER REPORT G3 ADAM-12 THE MUPPETS 7:30 0 MOVIE "Rosemary's Baby" (1968) Mia Farrow, John Cassa-vettes.

"Spectre" stars Robert Culp as Sebastian,' a prominent criminologist, and Academy Award-winner Gig Young as Hamilton, his physician companion. If that sounds like Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, it's no coincidence. Roddenberry said, "I originally wanted to do the untold stories of Sherlock Holmes the occult. But the rights were tied up in estate so I decided to bring it up to date. But as I wrote I got further and further away from that. Sebastian doesn't shoot cocaine or play the violin." He said he turned to the occult as a change of pace from science fiction and because his wife, Majel Barrett, nurse Christine Chapel in "Star Trek," is a "supernatural nut." She plays Lilith, a witch, in "Spectre," which was filmed in England. "He said I think the reason the occult has failed isjhat until recently the networks always chickened out," he said. "They wanted the unexplained to be explained. If you had a ghost it always turned out to be someone trying to frighten the aunt out of the estate.

Rarely has this been done. It's no more ridiculous to believe in demons than to believe in half the leading characters on TV today." In "Spectre," Sebastian and Hamilton are summoned to England to unravel baffling circumstances surrounding the life of Sir Geoffrey Cyon, whose wealth is increasing so rapidly he seems destined to dominate the world money markets. Roddenberry said he has purchased the movie rights to "Mind Reach," by Dr. Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ, about their laboratory experiments in ESP, "telepathy and clairvoyance at the Stanford Research Institute. But the movie most people are interested in is the long-awaited and much-delayed "Star Trek." Roddenberry said he expects the movie, with a budget of $8 million to $10 million, to go into production late this year. Why the delay? "If I'd been willing to settle for Capt. Kirk meets Godzilla it would have been in theaters ages ago," he said. "A large part of it is no one's fault.

Most science fiction movies take a pessimistic viewpoint. You can always find conflict in that, but 'Star Trek' was a series that said there was hope for the future." Everyone has proceeded slowly with the movie because if it isn't well received by the following of "Star Trek" fans it could damage what has been one of the most profitable series in the rerun market. If the movie is a success, Roddenberry said he does not want to do another weekly series but rather do four TV movies a year.
