Farewell, Majel

Another beloved “Star Trek” actor has passed away. Majel Barrett Roddenberry died on December 18, at age 76. While we know her best as “Nurse Chapel,” she appeared in every incarnation of the franchise, beginning with her role as “Number One” in the original pilot. Her voice became that of most of the Enterprise computers throughout the various series.

I had the chance to meet Ms. Barrett in 2004 at the Star Trek convention, and while she was a little harried after a long day, she was very gracious to me and my son. She will be missed.
