Majel Barrett-roddenberry Dies Aged 76

MAJEL BARRETT-RODDENBERRY, the actress widow of STAR TREK creator GENE RODDENBERRY, has died at the age of 76.
Barrett-Roddenberry lost her battle with leukaemia at her Bel-Air, California home on Thursday (18Dec08) afternoon, her representative confirms.
Her son Rod was by her side, reports Access Hollywood.
Barrett-Roddenberry starred in TV shows Bonanza, Leave it to Beaver, and The Lucy Show during her acting career - but she will be best remembered for her association with the Star Trek series.
The actress has played a part in every incarnation of the sci-fi show since it premiered in 1966, and only recently completed voiceover work as the voice of the Starship Enterprise in the new J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie.
A public memorial will take place in the next month.
Gene Roddenberry died in 1991, aged 70.
