I am a huge Star Trek fan and had to post a few comments about Majel Barrett Roddenberry. She passed away on December 18, 2008. Ironically I have been watching Star Trek TNG for the past few weeks now and have recently seen her character many times. Although Lwaxany Troi was a quirky character, I enjoyed watching her and her interaction with Deanna and Captain Picard. I have been watching her since the Original Series.
All I can say is that I offer my sincerest condolences to the family. Hopefully she is up there chilling out with Gene Roddenberry. Thanks for all you brought us Trekkers! I appreciate it all! You will be missed.
I read this on www.roddenberry.com and thought I should post it.
Majel Barrett Roddenberry passed away this morning, December 18, 2008, at 12:27 AM in her Bel Air home. She died peacefully, in her sleep, and was surrounded by family and loved ones.
“My mother truly acknowledged and appreciated the fact that Star Trek fans played a vital role in keeping the Roddenberry dream alive for the past 42 years. It was her love for the fans, and their love in return, that kept her going for so long after my father passed away.” – Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, Jr.
I was curious to see what other cast members from TNG had to say about Majel. All I could find was a comment by Wil Wheaton. You can read what he had to say here.
Feel free to post your own condolences in the “comments.”
