RIP Majel Roddenberry

with one comment

She was called „The First Lady of Star Trek”. I can really say that Majel Rodenberry has kept alive a image of Star Trek that i love. The bit of old ST that i like more than the new stuff. She’s been with the idea from the start, probably because of Gene’s relationship with her but i think she loved star trek and it’s fans.  She kept the dream of ST alive for 42 years. Now, as a ST fan who wears a James T. Kirk pin on my suit i can’t help but feel we’ve lost something important. Sure, i may not be one of the biggest ST fans, i haven’t even watched DS9 and i’ve always been a TOS kinda guy but the news sucks. She died peacefully in her bed surrounded by loved ones. She was a big part of star trek, with the idea and project from day 1, „the Cage” as the unnamed first officer and since them she appeared in every series and every movie including the one yet to be released. She was the voice of every enterprise. Kirk, Picard, every captain heard her voice. I really can’t imagine another voice for the Enterprise and so much more. I hope Rod carries on the vision and the torch she’s carried since Gene’s passing.

I’m not one to be religious but still, it’s a sad day for fans. Gene, Doohan, Majel, RIP

Because i want to end on a bright note, you can hear her as the Enterprise in the new film, i look forward to that.
