Barrett-Roddenberry Part of 'Star Trek XI'

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, widow of Gene Roddenberry, will lend her voice to Star Trek XI.

As reported by Roddenberry Productions, Barrett-Roddenberry will reprise her role as the voice of the USS Enterprise computer.

A part of Star Trek since the original pilot (The Cage), Barrett-Roddenberry has played several roles on Star Trek. She was first cast as "Number One," in The Cage. That role did not continue, but Barrett-Roddenberry was able to land the role of nurse Christine Chapel. On Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, she played Lwaxana Troi, mother of Deanna.

Barrett-Roddenberry has done voice work for each of the Star Trek television series, including the animated series, and for four of the Star Trek movies, including: Star Trek: Generations, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Nemesis and now Star Trek XI.

That's cool. I hadn't thought of how the computer voice would sound in Trek XI.

this will be another nice bit on continuity
Space, time, and thought are not the separate things they appear to be.

I've always liked her. This is great news indeed.

So we're not going to get an All Good Things-style rant this time?
Kim: I'm detecting some weird technobabble.
Janeway: A possibly dangerous anomaly that we know nothing about?
Kim: Yeah. I suppose we should steer clear.
Janeway: Ha! Good one, Ensign. Take us in, Mr. Paris.

As long as she's available, she should be part of Star Trek.
