Sad news. Majel Barrett Roddenberry passed away this morning. She was married to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and she was 76-years-old.
I first found out about it on Underpope’s Twitter feed.
In the pilot series, she was “Number 2” and second in command to Captain Pike. Many Trekkies loved her as the Nurse Chapel from the Original Series. I knew her best as the voice of the U.S.S. Enterprise computer in Next Generations. Also an interesting Trek tidbit – she’s the only actress to be featured in all 6 Star Trek TV Series.
R.I.P. Nurse Chapel.
