It took a nudge from bDr to clue me that Majel Barrett Roddenberry died yesterday, and I'm pretty stunned by it. No one who reads this should be surprised that I am a Trekkie. For those who will watch just about any Star Trek franchise product (I draw the line at Enterprise, and I missed a lot of DS9 owing to my then-inability to schedule anything), Majel Roddenberry, pictured above with Gene Roddenberry not long before his death in 1991, was iconic--probably now more so even than Gene. I'm gonna bum on this for a while.
Which won't keep from relating my thought that a John DeLancey versus Majel Barrett Roddenberry episode of Celebrity Deathmatch could've been pretty fucking cool. Trust me, or do your own backtrace.
bDr's flawed claim that his mother-in-law is Lwaxana Troi is both true and false (and thanksnot for the visual-by-implication, bitch). I'll leave it there.
RIP, Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed.
