RIP Majel Barret Roddenberry

As reported on the Access Hollywood site and blogged by folks on my f-list, Majel Barrett Roddenberry, widow of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, has passed away at the age of 76 after a battle with leukemia.

In addition to her on-screen roles in various incarnations of Star Trek — Number One in the original pilot; Nurse Christine Chapel in the original series; and Lawaxana Troi in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine — she also had voiced characters for the animated Star Trek series, and was famous as the voice of Starfleet computers.

Farewell, Majel. I never knew thee, but you will be missed all the same.
