R.I.P. Majel Barrett Roddenberry

Courtesy of The Beat:
Majel Barrett Roddenberry, widow of STAR TREK creator Gene Roddenberry, passed away today at the age of 76.

She had just recently finished voice work for the new STAR TREK movie, reprising her role as the voice of the ship’s computer.

In the original series, she played Nurse Chapel, as well as Number One in the original TREK pilot “The Cage.”

People forget she was active in Star Trek even before William Shatner was... I'm glad she was involved in the upcoming film and am truly sorry her contributions to the Star Trek mythos are over.
