You’re probably asking yourself how J.J. Abrams plans to use the voice of Majel Barrett for Starfleet if she isn’t around anymore to read off her lines. In true science fiction fashion, Barrett, who married Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, was asked to record a library of phonetic sounds that could be used in future productions of the franchise. Additionally, as a feminist achievement, the role of “Number One” will be reprised by an unknown actor to pay tribute to The First Lady of Strek Trek. Star Trek: Discovery will be placed 10 years prior to the original series that began airing in 1965. By bringing back a character that was tossed away by gender inequality gives all female Trekkies, and Majel Barret herself, the last laugh in a galaxy ruled by men. Majel also infamously played the part of Lwaxana Troi, a Betazoid ambassador who was no stranger to flirtation, tragedy, and controversy. It’s safe to say that the Star Trek Universe wouldn’t be the same without the veteran actress not just because of the longevity her presence has beheld, but because of the influence and solidarity she proclaimed within the franchise. To immortalize her voice and use her as the eternal Starfleet computer is the perfect way to keep a small piece of nostalgia and memory attached to the origin of the long-running series and films. Remember, folks – Live long and prosper.
