I wonder if there are enough recording samples of Majel Barret as the computer that they could use a computer to sample her voice.
Were I producer at Trek I would have done this years ago: get a sampling of all of her phonetic performances and make a matrix of her voice suitable for any statements.

We know this is possible; the Simpsons actors were almost thrown out of work years ago because FOX said they didn't need them anymore.

(sorry, someone in the last 4 pages probably already said this, but I didn't have the patience to sift through all of it.)

Frank Welker could work...

He does Scooby-Doo...

Wrong right off the bat... Frank Welker does the voice of Freddy Jones on Scooby Doo. You also missed two of his more noticeable roles, Megatron and Soundwave on the Transformers. (That's right! Freddy Jones = Megatron!)

Scooby Doo was voiced by Don Messick, who also did the voice of Papa Smurf, among many, many, others.

I know my voice actors.






Sigourney Weaver would be a great choice, especially considering her role on Galaxy Quest. But my #1 vote goes to (Sorry Nichelle) Kathleen Turner!

That's true, but Frank Welker has been doing the voice of Scooby-Doo since Don Messick passed away in 1997...

And that post was meant to be sarcastic and/or amusing, so I deliberately skipped over Frank Welker's non-animal roles...

You know I have to say that I think Sigourney Weaver could do a good job with it.

Re: Who should voice the USS Enterprises computers?

About the Ebert voice thing, the same company also did one for George Bush. There's a website somewhere where you can type in a phrase and make George W. Bush say whatever you want. It wasn't that bad.

Considering the Enterprise computer will be saying much of the same thing as always, I bet the technology would turn out better than either Ebert or George. It is expensive though.

In a thread about directors for ENT it is mentioned that Roxanne Dawson:
dead stop (she also did the computer voice)
Is this true? I haven't seen

Was the Cardassian voice male?
Only in the VOY episode "Deadlock", I think. (The voice of the automated missile that B'Elanna was trying to reprogram.)

The voice of the automated missile was B'Elanna herself, since she programmed it.

Um... WHAT?!? Did you watch the episode? It was an AI missile from another planet. She didn't program it, and it was definitely a male voice.

Re: Who should voice the USS Enterprises computers?

The missile spoke in a male voice *until* B'Elanna reprogrammed it, at which time it started speaking with her voice (B'Elanna did that on purpose, since she couldn't stand the original voice ).

Re: Who should voice the USS Enterprises computers?

Maj also did the computer for many Star Trek games....

I'm sure those recording sessions have a lot of samples to pick & choose from, take the Trek Encyclopedia programs alone where she spoke all the data about the ships & tech....

Imagine a Tom Tom or Garmin [sp] ad with her voice trilling from the device, how strange that would seem to folks, yet at the same time seem perfectly logical....

Trek Tech becoming real tech, heh heh heh heh heh heh...

Re: Who should voice the USS Enterprises computers?

Someone probably already mentioned this:

James Earl Jones as the ENT computer....or even Robert Vaughn (who did the voice of Proteus in Demon Seed in the 70s)....or Kiefer Sutherland who had an interesting off-screen voice in Phone Booth...

Another one is sexy Katey Segal.....

That'd sure scare the hell out of enemy boarding parties. They force their way onto the ship and then hear this:

"Drop the phasers! Drop them NOW!!!"
