Majel Barrett Roddenberry, the widow of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry and an actress whose longtime association with the "Star Trek" franchise included playing Nurse Christine Chapel in the original series, died early Thursday morning. She was 76.

Roddenberry died at her home in Bel-Air after a battle with leukemia, said family spokesman Sean Rossall.

She also played the voice of the ship on Star Trek: The Next Generation. And I believe she was the McCoy's nurse (the one who had a crush on Spock) in the old series.

So, a bit of nepotism, but it was for the good. Her Lwaxana in particular was a hoot.

Yup!


But I am so happy her and Gene will finally be reunited.
