The First Lady of Star Trek, Majel Barrett Roddenberry , has died.

The First Lady of Star Trek died today, I feel as I owe Star Trek. I believe that some of my love for Tech originated there. Therefore, I wanted to post this blog Entry, and put my heart out to the family of Majel Barrett Roddenberry known as The First Lady of Star Trek.

Majel Barrett Roddenberry passed away this morning, December 18, 2008, at 12:27 AM in her Bel Air home. She died peacefully, in her sleep, and was surrounded by family and loved ones.

“My mother truly acknowledged and appreciated the fact that Star Trek fans played a vital role in keeping the Roddenberry dream alive for the past 42 years. It was her love for the fans, and their love in return, that kept her going for so long after my father passed away.” – Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, Jr.
