It will be eerie to hear her voice in the new Star Trek movie as the voice of the ship’s computer again. I’m sure I’ll tear up. Being a child of The Next Generation era, I remember her best as Lwaxana Troi and the amazing job she did as such an eccentric character.
She will be dearly missed.

Someone has already created a nice video tribute to her on YouTube:

  1. Anyone who ever met Majel will agree with me that she was a great “broad” in the best sense of the word! She will be greatly missed, but at least she and Gene are together again.

  2. I teared up when I heard, after she died, that she was going to *be* the voice of the computer. And I teared up at the first teaser trailer they showed in the theatres. Apparently I’m going to spend the entire shiny new movie crying….

  3. I will always remember her as being the first star i ever saw at a Star Trek convention… I have a personalized autograph that i will always treasure, along with a photo of the both of us…. and that was 19 years ago… classy lady.. Heartfelt peace and love to family…
