It is with a sad hear that I report to all you fans out there that Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, died Thursday morning from Leukemia. She was 76.
Barrett-Roddenberry played many roles in Star Trek, as ship computer’s voice, Deanna Troi’s mother Lwaxana, and other characters. She also appeared on other TV shows. While she herself didn’t create Star Trek, she was a staunch supporter of her husband’s work and this science-fiction fan favorite.
Her final work was the voice of the ship’s computer in the upcoming Star Trek movie.
