Trek Geeks #188: Majel Barrett Roddenberry


Our Women of Trek spotlight series continues this week as we take a look at one of Star Trek’s original contributors.

She was an absolute force of nature, and in this episode we’ll examine the roles played by Majel Barrett Roddenberry in front of the camera, behind the scenes, and in fandom itself.

Number One, Christine Chapel, Lwaxana Troi…even the Enterprise Computer, Majel left an indelible mark on the franchise and created characters that we continue to talk about to this day.

But there was far more than that. Majel was an Ambassador of Trek, especially in the years after Gene passed, and we’ll examine that aspect of her life as well, and consider her legacy.

Plus, we’ll have a full length preview of the brand new Five Year Mission Podcast at the end of this episode and don’t forget about your exclusive FanSets discount code!
