Farewell to the original #1.

Majel Barrett Roddenberry has died.

Thank you, ma'am.


I'm sad now. It's the end of an era.
Indeed. :-(
I'm getting tired of all the icons of my childhood dying. It sucks, but there's not much to be done I fear.
I hear that, too clearly and too well.
She truly was the first No 1. You will always be missed, but never forgotten, Majel! Thank you! *cries*

I'm sad, too. I'm hoping she got to play her part in the new film before her death.
I believe so.
She *just* finished her voiceover work.
I cried. I think so many of us felt this so keenly. She was absolutely amazing.
WTF! I was watching the Lady Morella episode of B5 today. At random. For some reason. After not watching B5 for months.
Did you know her at all?
I never had the honor of meeting her.
All the good Cons are going to be in Heaven next year.
I am bummed. I met her once, some friends and I did a group costume "Daughters of the Houses of Betazed" for a con she was at some years back-- all variations on costumes that she'd worn as Lwaxana, and she was delighted and came up to us after the contest and chatted and insisted on getting photographs with us. She was lovely. I'm so glad to hear she was able to complete her work on the new film before she passed. She will be missed.


There aren't enough cool people in the world as it is. Can't we declare a moritorium on REALLY cool people leaving?
Oh dear.

I got to meet her several times and had some lovely conversations. She was a really classy lady. I'll miss her.

I think she was more "Star Trek" than her late husband. He may have created it, but she was the heart and soul.

(Alas, my Star Trek Icon is not quite appropriate for this comment. Pretend my "Heidi" icon is in a Federation uniform.)
