Majel Barrett-Roddenberry memorial service photos…

Here are photos of the memorial service of Majel Barrett-Roddenberry (photos courtesy of trekmovie.com)…

A large photo and flowers of Majel…

Majel’s memorial is seen here…

Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi from the Next Generation) chats it up with George Takei (Sulu), the old man in the middle is the Paramount executive, A.C. Lyles.

Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig chats it up with “Deep Space Nine” star Chase Masterson, look like Chekov is enjoying himself a piece of cake or something.

Star Trek writer Rick Berman chatting it up with Brent Spiner (Data from The Next Generation)…

Will Wheaton (Wesley Crusher from The Next Generation) and his wife chatting it up with Roddenberry.com site admin, Trevor Roth.

Nichelle Nichols the original Uhura first showing up at the memorial service, notice her face, she looks very sad…

Star Trek “Voyager’s” Robert Picardo (he played the doctor in “Voyager”) posing for the camera.

Again, no sign of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy being at the funeral. JJ Abrams himself didn’t even attend. If there’s more memorial service pics I’ll post ’em.

Enjoy.

Report: Majel Barrett-Roddenberry laid to rest today…

Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, the first lady of Star Trek, has been laid to rest today. She was laid to rest at a Los Angeles cemetery. The funeral service was open to the public. It was even opened for Star Trek fans, yes, many of the Star Trek fans showed up wearing Star Trek uniforms, pins, and other clothing you see in the series. Some cast members of Star Trek showed up as well. Star Trek veterans, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, and George Takei were there to mourn their friend. There was no sign of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy being there.

Isn’t it amazing that so many die hard Star Trek fans all over the country travelled all the way to L.A. to support a famous person they don’t even know? At a funeral? As a die hard Trekkie myself, I couldn’t even attend the funeral ’cause it would be too emotional for me. Yes, I probably would have cried if I attended the funeral. This moment is almost like Spock dying in “Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan” but this is obviously real life.

RIP Majel, such a sad loss. We shall celebrate her work with the Star Trek computer for one last time when we see JJ Abrams new film.

Such a huge loss in the Star Trek community. As a huge Star Trek junkie myself, I’m sad of her death too.

I remember when Deforest Kelly died in 1999, and he is still missed as well. I think Deforest would be proud of JJ’s new “Star Trek” film.
