Rest In Peace, Majel Barrett Roddenberry

Another from Star Trek's galaxy has stepped through the Guardian of Forever: Majel Barrett Roddenberry, a secretary-turned-actor who later married Gene Roddenberry. Majel Barrett Roddenberry -- her name deserves to be said in full each time -- appeared in every single filmed incarnation of Trek, whether as the voice of Starfleet's computers, the enigmatic Number 1 in the original pilot "The Cage," Nurse (later Dr.) Chapel in Classic Trek, and Lwaxana Troi in Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Peter David's TNG novel Q-In-Law.

Thanks to saraphina_marie, I got to read this worthy write-up from CultureGeek's Elizabeth Donald about Majel Barrett Roddenberry's intriguing life.

She had recorded her lines as the Enterprise's computer for the eleventh Star Trek film, coming out next year.
