Majel Barrett Passes at 76

Majel Barrett, wife of the late Gene Roddenberry and the First Lady of Star Trek, has passed away from complications of leukemia this morning.

She appeared in several different incarnations of “Star Trek,” including the original series, “Next Generation,” several of the movies, and even in the fan-produced “New Voyages.”

Her voice also is that of the Enterprise computer in the upcoming theatrical release of “Star Trek” from producer J.J. Abrams.

She’ll be dearly missed.
