‘First Lady of Star Trek’ Dead at 76

majelbarrett.jpg Majel Barrett Roddenberry, who trekkies will know as…an icon. Pretty much. Passed away at her home in Bel Air today reports the AP.

From AP:

Her romance with Roddenberry earned her the title “The First Lady of Star Trek.” A fixture in the “Star Trek” franchise, her roles included Nurse Christine Chapel in the original “Star Trek,” Lwaxana Troi in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and the voice of the USS Enterprise computer in almost every spin-off of the 1966 cult series. She recently reprised the voice role in the upcoming “Star Trek” film directed by J.J. Abrams.

Her wikipedia page is excellent and worth a look.
