Majel Barrett Roddenberry
Majel Barret Roddenberry has died peacefully in her Bel Air home on December 18th 2008. Her roles in Star Trek introduced a confident "Number One" character in the pilot episode "The Cage" which was reinvented as the lovely Nurse Christine Chapel with a soft spot for Mr Spock later on. She starred in some of the movies and appeared in three of the Star Trek series. ("Star Trek" (1966), "Star Trek - The Next Generation" (1987), "Star Trek - Deep Space Nine" (1993) Majel was famous for the ships computer voice which she supplied for Federation starships counting the USS Enterprise 1701 in the Star Trek movie. She played the Betazoid Ambassodor Lwaxana Troi on Star Trek, The Next Generation including Deep Space Nine and was brilliant. I will miss her and our journeys through the galaxy together. May she find eternal happiness with Gene beyond the final frontier, going boldly where none of us have ever, gone before.
