I am a huge Star Trek: The Next Generation fan. Seriously, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched every episode and can never get enough. So on December 18th it was a sad day among the Star Trek family.
Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, the wife of Gene Roddenberry (the creator and writer of the Star Trek series) and commonly known as the First Lady of Star Trek died of leukemia.
In case you didn’t know she was the voice of the computer for all the Star Trek TV Series and Star Trek films. Listen to her announce a Warp Core Collapse. She just recently lent her voice as the ship’s computer for the new Star Trek film to be released in 2009.
Most Trek Fans will remember her as Lwaxana Troi in TNG (The Next Generation) as Troi’s mom.
