The universe is a spherical region seven hundred and five meters in diameter.

That’s my favorite “Computer Voice” line from Star Trek: The Next Generation, given in response to Dr. Crusher’s query: “Computer, here’s a question you shouldn’t be able to answer: What is the nature of the Universe?”

Anyway, Majel Barrett Roddenberry, the actress who played the Computer Voice as well as Nurse Christine Chapel, Number One, and Lwaxana Troi in various Trek series, has died. A shame.
