Majel Barrett Roddenberry 1932-2008
Majel Barrett Roddenberry Dies At 76
I was very saddened to read that actress Majel Barrett Roddenberry, the widow of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry and affectionately known as the First Lady of Star Trek died of leukemia today.
She had the distinction of being the only actor who, in various roles, had been in every dramatic incarnation the Star Trek franchise, including live-action and animated versions, television and cinema.
She recently finished her role as the voice of the USS Enterprise computer in director J.J. Abrams' movie "Star Trek," which is due out in May, 2009, her family said.
