Re: Who should voice the Enterprise computer?

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry last appeared as the iconic voice of the Enterprise in Star Trek XI.

Going forward, what would you like to see happen regarding the role? Do you think they should use a Barret-Roddenberry sound alike, perhaps a rotating list of voices, or a new permanent voice actor? If so, who?

I would choose George Takei, owing to both his great vocals and articulate delivery, and his connection to Trek (TOS specifically). Avery Brooks would also be a contender.
An existing connection to Trek means jack with it comes to VO and really would be cheesy as hell. We had our valentine with Enterprise's finale. It sucked.

Expand your horizons for people who have good voices. Probably feminine as that's what we've had for almost 50 years. A booming baratone coming from the speakers would be ridiculous.

"T-Minus 45 seconds until self-destruct. Ohhh myyy..."

It's absurd.
