To Boldly Go… To the Great Beyond

December 18, 2008

Sometimes, I hate it when I’m right.

The Trifecta strikes once again.  First it was the Ackermonster, then Bettie Page, and now Majel Barrett-Roddenberry has passed.

The widow of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was there from the beginning.  Starting with the original series as Number One in the pilot and Nurse Chapel for the rest, Majel was the Star Trek mainstay.  As the voice of the computers she appeared in every incarnation of the Trek world.

You will be missed.

who is glad Majel had a chance to once again voice the Enterprise computers for the new Star Trek movie before she passed.

Goodnight Ms. Page

It’s unfortunate that I am writing two of these in a row, but I had a feeling it was going to happen after I heard Bettie Page was admitted to the hospital the same day Uncle Forry passed on.

Now, she too has passed.  She was 85.

She was a cult sensation, and shall remain so.  She will forever be an embodiment of beauty.


Goodnight Ms. Page.  May you rest in peace.

who is now waiting for the other shoe to drop because sadly, these things always happen in threes.
