Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, 1932-2008 (RIP)

<  Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, 1932-2008 (RIP)

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry has boldly gone on.

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, the wife of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, has passed away, Access Hollywood has learned. She was 76.

The actress died of leukemia at 12:27 AM on Thursday with her son, Rod, by her side. She was diagnosed with the disease six months ago.

Majel, whose acting credits included “Bonanza” and “Leave It To Beaver,” had been a part of “Star Trek” in all of its forms since it first premiered on September 8, 1966.

As the sound of the Enterprise’s computer in its many variations, her voice has been a part of my life for longer than I care to remember.

Thanks for sharing this update. I had not heard. As part of the Star Trek universe she was a fixture in my childhood and into my adult life. She will be missed.
