Voice Of The Enterprise Is Silenced. Majel Barrett-Roddenbur

Postby TeMerc » Thu Dec 18, 2008 6:32 pm

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry passed away in her home at 12:27am this morning after a battle with leukemia. She was 76 years old.

Majel was with STAR TREK since before most of the world knew what STAR TREK was, since before she married TREK creator Gene Roddenberry. She played "Number One", Captain Christopher Pike's First Officer, in "The Cage" (an unaired TREK pilot later cannibalized as flashback fodder for an Original Series episode called "The Menagerie"). She also appeared as Nurse Christine Chapel in THE ORIGINAL SERIES - Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy's stalwart sidekick whose crush on Spock provided many memorable, and amusing, moments.

She is remembered. I tend to look back on the old (NO) great shows, and ST was one of 'em. Low budget, often silly, but it packed a bunch with the dialogue. Initially coined as the"Western Stagecoach in the Skies" Star Trek goes down with glory (along with Majel), Mindblower!

Always enjoy these series, even the newer ones. But the original was best

A great actress and a sad loss :( Not sure if I could ever get used to anyone else doing the voice for the ships computer as she did it so good.

I loved the ST as a whole especially Voyager series which I am more a fan of.
