The First Lady of Star Trek Passes

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry dies at age 76

Star Trek's creative direction moved away from Gene and Majel long ago, but Majel was one of the hearts of fandom. She and Gene kept Trek alive when it was barely nothing more than Lincoln Enterprises being run from their house in Van Nuys., the family company website, has just been slashdotted out of existence from the traffic as the news has broken.

I knew you'd pick that up Id.

She was ahead of her time.
RIP Majel...

I loved her as Deanna Troi's mom. She reminded me of Angnes Moorehead frome Bewitched. Hilarious and straightforward and snarky. RIP.
