I agree.
No. A computer voice that could one day be tossing off shield stats and warp core breach warnings must have a bit of a brass twang to it, as Majel's did. Sirtis has a lovely voice, but no twang.

Speaking of Apple, the last film did a shout out to Nokia - I wonder if they will do any product placements this go around?

It would be cool to see either Apple or Samsung in this flick.
I would LOL if the PADDs had the Apple logo on them.

Considering how much this movie is costing to make ($185 million), a little product placement is almost a certainty. Perhaps some of those flying cars will have familiar manufacturers.

Given the cost of making movies today, it's inevitable that they'll need product placement to help with the financing.

I think we will get to see Marina's take on the voice; just saying.

I thought Lynneanne Zager did a fine job.

Serious thought: how about John Billingsley? His Phlox voice is immediately recognizable but I think he could do a computer voice quite well.

I wonder - given how many lines of computer dialogue she must have done over the years, how hard would it be to imprint Majel's vocal patterns onto a Siri-style computer voice? That way the Enterprise's 'voice' could still be Majel (sort of).

Re: Who should voice the Enterprise computer?

Okay, the Fran Drescher suggestion made me laugh out loud and now I'm going to be hearing it in her voice no matter who does it. But as far as serious suggestions? George Takei, Terry Farrell, or Whoopi Goldberg would all be reluctantly acceptable if you wanted to have some cutesy connection. But as much as I have an irrational loathing of Stockard Channing, she seems to be the best suggestion I've heard yet.

That technology doesn't exist. So, pretty hard.
