Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry has died, aged 76, of leukemia at her home in Los Angeles.
Majel was a well know and much beloved fixture in the Star Trek universe. Know best perhaps for her role as the voice of Enterprise Computer in each and every Star Trek series to date, she also played several characters including The Original Series' Number One and Dr. Christine Chapel. She also featured in many television shows throughout her career.
Affectionately know as the "First Lady of Star Trek", she nurtured and cherished the memory of her late husband through her continued embrace of Star Trek and its fans. She had only recently completed recording her final recording as the Enterprise Computer for next year's Star Trek film. She leaves behind her only son, Eugene, to continue the Roddenberry legacy.
