Remembering Majel Barrett Roddenberry



The First Lady of Star Trek has died at the age of 76 from leukemia.

From "Number One" in the original Star Trek pilot through to the voice of the computer in the upcoming J.J. Abrams movie, she has been a part of the Star Trek universe in every incarnation. I'm happy that I, like many other Star Trek fans, had a chance to meet her at a convention. She will be missed.

This was the shock of the day for me. She'll be missed. Perhaps one day she'll be the voice of every computer. There's certainly enough recorded dialog to create her voice electronically. Someone should start a project, campaign, write Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and the Ubuntu guy, or something.

If nothing else, they should be able to use her voice for all of the future Star Trek stuff from what's already been recorded. It just wouldn't be right having a ST computer without her voice!
