Vale – Majel Barrett

We pause for rememberance today, as the voice of Star Trek has passed away.

Majel Barrett, wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, passed away today at her home in Los Angeles. Barrett was heavily involved with almost all the Star Trek series and films, as the voice of the Enterprise computer in almost every incarnation of the show. Her final work for the Star Trek brand was on the upcoming JJ Abrams version (to be released in 2009), again reprising her role of the ship’s computer.

For those who enjoy and appreciate Star Trek, she will be missed.

Vale Majel Barret – 1932-2008.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney’s keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them.

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman.

As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney’s love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
