Actress and wife of the late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry passed away from leukemia. She was 76 years old. Majel Lee Hudac’s career began with a TV show called “Whirlybirds,” and she had parts on other various shows and films until 1966 when she played the role of Nurse Chapel on “Star Trek;” she also voiced the Enterprise Computer. After the series ended, Gene Roddenberry married her in Japan. Since then she has primarily stuck with “Star Trek,” playing voicing the ship’s computer in every incarnation of the series, as well as playing Lwaxana Troi in “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and doing multiple voices for “Star Trek: The Animated Series.”

 

Thoughts and prayers for her family and friends.
