There is very sad news today in the Star Trek world. Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, widow of Gene and known to fans as Nurse Chapel, the original Number One, Lwaxana Troi, and of course the voice of just about every Federation computer in every show and movie, has passed away at age 76. She had been fighting leukemia for some years, evidently, and unfortunately died of complications from the disease early this morning in California.

credit to bruce for giving me the heads up...

She'll be missed..

Ironically her last role is that she is the computer voice J.J.'S Trek movie


That movie will have at the beginning
In loving memory of Majel Barrett
At least her and Gene are together again.

This is very sad news indeed - the "first lady" of Star Trek is now sadly no longer with us ...

I was, however, pleased to hear that she had indeed completed work on JJ Abrams' "Star Trek" before her passing; after lending her vocals to every single incarnation of Star Trek that's ever been produced, it just wouldn't have been the same to hear someone else voicing the Enterprise's computer. I guess she was one of the only things that linked together all the various TV series and films, and she'll be hugely missed by the fans. RIP.

May she rest in peace.

sad I liked Lwaxana Troi. She was a really fun character. Majel did more than almost anyone to keep Roddenbury's legacy alive. She will be missed. salute

What a shame she passed away. sad

Majel and Ricardo both in the same week / month ? Damn.
