Who should voice the USS Enterprises computers?
 
With Majel Barrett-Roddenberry's passing almost a year ago now; who could step up to be the voice of the USS Enterprise which Majel did so well since TOS through Voyager and I believe even in Enterprise too if I remember correctly.

I am so glad she was the new movies computer voice and she will be missed as Chapel and Lwaxana, I hope JJ picks a suitable replacement.:sigh:

I like Susan Gibney (Dr. Leah Brahms from TNG). She does technical and scientific narration very well, and she sounds enough like Majel to have a certain continuity.

You could also get Ellen McLain (GLaDOS from Portal). Never before has a computer voice been so entertaining. :p

Enough with the joking this is a serious discussion, besides why use just Ozzy when instead you can use all three of children all doing the voice of the computer simultaneously, saying the same thing, and all cursing at the same time.

I wonder if there are enough recording samples of Majel Barret as the computer that they could use a computer to sample her voice.

Any random voice actor would be fine.

Just having some fun, bud. ;)

Anyway, what's wrong with The Oz: I've got him on my car's GPS Navigator... :cool:

Alanis Morisette
Yeah, she's a singer, but she's got a pretty good speaking voice that could easily be from an advanced computer, IMO.

Anything as long as it precedes every statement with a loud faux-robotic "WORKING!..."

Val Kilmer. They could use all the left over sound bites from Knight Rider.
