Wow... Like others on this board, I had no idea she was ill.

She will be missed.

Re: Majel Barrett-Roddenberry Passes

Some of my favorite memories of working at Star Trek: The Experience were when Majel would show up and spend hours around Quark's, talking to fans and expressing her appreciation for the employees there. I had the dubious pleasure of correcting her Klingon handshake. She laughed and said, "Yeah, you'd think I'd know how to do this." There's also a photo floating around of her giving oomox to Dr. Vlarg, one of our Ferengi contingent.

Sad news.

Re: Majel Barrett-Roddenberry Passes

This is such sad news. I admit I was shocked to see it.

In addition to her Trek work, I vividly recall her role as Lady Morella in Babylon 5. She was a much better actress than she was given credit for.

Requiescat in pace, and thanks for the memories.

Oh. I'm really saddened by this news. She was part of Star Trek in so many ways. She will be missed.

Rest in Peace Majel.

Suddenly the "changing of the guard" and the start of a "new trek" seems even more fitting.

Re: Majel Barrett-Roddenberry Passes

I was both saddened and shocked to hear this. Majel was a guest at the first convention my wife and I attended as a couple, which also happened to be my wife's (then girlfriend's) first con. Majel was very approachable, always willing to talk, and could drink most of us under the table.

Our sympathies to Rod and all her friends and family. She'll be missed.

I had heard she was "slowing down", but took that to mean she was simply aging.

This is sad.

A classy lady, who in later Trek showed a fantastic ability for both comic and dramatic timing.

Star Trek will be a much poorer place without her.

So many feelings, so few words.

Thank you for the years of entertainment. You will certainly be remembered.

Re: Majel Barrett-Roddenberry Passes

Truly, truly sad news. Reading some online articles about her passing, I'm actually close to tears. I didn't know she was ill either.

She was a beautiful, classy lady in every way, and her devotion to Star Trek, to Gene, and to the millions of fans was incredible. She will definitely be missed.
