today majel barrett-roddenberry died. she played nurse chapel on ‘star trek’, lwaxana troi on ‘star trek: the next generation’ and ‘star trek: deep space nine’ and the voice of the computer on all contemporary trek series, as well as the forthcoming jj abrams movie. she married gene roddenberry, creator of ‘star trek’, and by all accounts she was a lovely person who will be dearly missed. the chemistry she had with patrick stewart? AND jonathan frakes? i mean, who can make picard uncomfortable the way lwaxana can? or make odo uncomfortable, for that matter. *sigh*
