For us Trekkers this is a sad day. Majel Barrett-Roddenberry passed away today. She played Nurse Chapel in Star Trek (TOS), and later Lwaxana Troi in Star Trek:The Next Generation. But many people don't know that throughout the Star Trek lifetime, she was almost always the voice of the computer too.

Majel was 76.

I read that she finished the computer voice work for the new film before she died.

Yes. Have you seen the trailer for the new movie? I'm not sure I'll like it.
