That's so sad. It feels kind of odd having a favorite guest character (Deanna's mom) die the same day you find out you're going to live.

For those of you who didn't get a chance to meet up with and talk to Ms. Roddenberry at any of the many, many cons she attended... well, you guys missed out on meeting someone who really was a joy. The fact that she made herself so available to the fandoms was unique. While Shatner and Nimoy were commanding huge speaking fees, and refused to do autographs, MBG would be out there chatting with folks in line, or have a small crowd of fans sitting around her, chatting away. My sister has one of those silly hats she used to make and sell, (I think she got hers on one of the first Trek cruises.) I myself, have a framed 8X10 of her as nurse Chapel, I think taken on or about the time they were filming "What Are Little Girls Made Of? At least, the spray foamed cave wall she's posing against seems to have been from that show. Anyway, it's a cherished memory of her autographing it for me.

I'm not sure... but isn't she like one of the very few people who have been in ALL of Star Trek? All the movies, all the series... Either as an actress or with her voice, at some point?

Yup. As of today she's in every incarnation of Trek.

After hearing rumors of Majel's declining health it's still a shock. It's like losing a member of your own family. No, we have indeed lost a member of our family. She will live forever in our hearts.

Reaching back to Feb 2008, I found this: http://www.startrekmovie.com/forums/...read.php?t=731

Too bad it never happened. Tonight, I'm scanning the local papers checking for any recognition of an Ohio girl who was quick with a hypo.

"Well Jim... I hear Chapel's an M.D. now. Well I'm gonna need a top nurse... not a doctor who'll argue every little diagnosis with me."
