Majel Barrett-Roddenberry has passed on

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry — Nurse Chapel from the original Star Trek series, the voice of the computer in almost every incarnation of Star Trek, as well as Gene Roddenberry’s widow — passed away this morning at 76. AICN gives her a better farewell than I’m able to, so I’ll just send you there.

Her last announced role was as the voice of the computer for the upcoming JJ Abrams Star Trek reboot, although it is unclear if she had finished recording her part.

UPDATE: The Associated Press article on Barrett-Roddenberry’s passing included the news that she had indeed finished her voice work for the new Star Trek film.

    Didn’t she also play Deanna Troi’s mother in ST:TNG?
