Who Am I?

As always, the pictures I post with quizzes are not to be taken too literally.
This is just another hint.

I wrote a script for the unproduced "Star Trek: Phase II" series that was cancelled in favor of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).
I was 63 when I married my third wife in 1999; she was only 29.
I am a descendant of the classic composer Johann Sebastian Bach.
I was a charter pilot, flight instructor, aviation mechanic, and barnstormer.
I was a Captain in the U.S. Air Force from 1956-1962.
One of my most famous books starts: It was morning, and the new sun sparkled gold across the ripples of a gentle sea. A mile from shore a fishing boat chummed the water.  
I am credited with saying, “Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years."
