As some of you may or may not know, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, the widow of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, has died.

Barrett portrayed several characters throughout the Star Trek franchise, notably Christine Chapel, Lwaxana Troi, and the Starfleet computer voice. According to her family, Barrett died of leukemia at her home in Bel Air, California, on 18th December, 2008. She was 76 years old.

May we honor her memory.

Rest in peace.

This is a sad day in Star Trek and Shadow Fleet history. Majal was helping SF behind the screen as some may know about and many don't. I will add Majal to the Site History when i update and finish it.
