Not all the movies. She wasn't in Star Trek's II, III, V and VI.

RIP Majel.

I cannot begin to express how sad I was when I heard this. It's a total shock, awful, terrible news. I loved to watch her in Star Trek in all of her roles as Number 1, Christine Chapel, The voice of the Computer, Lwoxana Troi, and i remember her as the spellcasting secretary in SPECTRE. She will be deeply and greatly missed. Star Trek lost a piece of its soul today. I don't know how to say what I'm feeling, I'm devastated.

Default More Information

Majel Barrett Roddenberry passed away this morning 12/18/08 at the age of 76. The first lady of Star Trek’ died of leukemia at her home in Bel Air. At her side were her son Eugene ‘Rod’ Roddenberry along with family and friends.

Roddenberry succumbed to a short battle with Leukemia at 12:27 AM on December 18 in her Bel-Air home. She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her son Rod Roddenberry and family friends. She is survived by her only son Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry Jr.

Barrett-Roddenberry: an unforgettable legacy
Majel Barrett began her career in the 1950’s with roles in such popular shows as "Leave it to Beaver," "Bonanza" and "The Lucy Show; but it was her numerous roles in the legendary Star Trek franchise that fans came to know and love her. Roddenberry had featured roles in almost every Star Trek television and film entity and became an iconic figure within the fan community. Her roles included Nurse Chapel in Star Trek: The Original Series, Lwaxana Troi in Star Trek: The Next Generation and the voice of the USS Enterprise computer in almost every incarnation of the series. However, it was the love affair between her and the late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry that earned her the title "The First Lady of Star Trek." Over the course of their more then quarter-century love affair, she became not only Gene’s partner, but also his creative muse. Roddenberry helped Gene expand the Star Trek universe and was an integral part of its continued legacy after his death. Majel recently
completed reprising her role as the voice of the USS Enterprise for J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek film.

I know that I didn't actually know her but it feels like we lost the First Lady of Trek.
It's like there's no one left.
How appropriate that the New Trek will be born after her passing with no passing of a torch or ceromony.

I'm absolutely gutted. Star Trek aside, she was just such a warm and generous lady. A real loss.

Nimoy's been actively passing the torch all along, and I'm sure he will continue to do so next May and beyond.

Spock....Spock is only the famous night of Trek. We've lost the last of our royalty.
