Sometimes, you’ve just got to say “The laws of time and space? Who gives a smeg?”

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry – In Memoriam

Posted by Michael Warren on December 19, 2008

Not surprisingly, the news from the Star Trek universe is dominated today by the passing of Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, best known as the widow of Gene Roddenberry and the actress who portrayed the characters of  Number One, Christine Chapel, Lwaxana Troi, and the Starfleet computer. It was only a week ago that it was announced that she would reprise her role as the Enterprise computer in Star Trek next year.

Her death is a huge loss to the science fiction community, and condolences go to her friends and family.
