Re: RIP: Majel Barrett

I can see why she was sometimes called the "First Lady of Star Trek". Not just for being married to the creator of the series. She's done a lot of work herself, and it's sad to hear she's gone.

She had just been announced as reprising the computer voice. I wonder if she got to do it.

Very sad news. He role as Luxana Troy was always enjoyable, if a bit camp, but she really loved the show.

Sad news to hear indeed. She's left one hell of a legacy and impact on 'Star Trek'.
