Majel Barrett-Roddenberry (born Majel Leigh Hudec; February 23, 1932 December 18, 2008) was an American actress and producer. She is perhaps best known for her role as Nurse Christine Chapel in the original Star Trek series, Lwaxana Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and for being the voice of most onboard computer interfaces throughout the series. She was also the wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry.

As the wife of Roddenberry and given her ongoing relationship with Star Trek participating in some way in every series to date she was sometimes referred to as "the First Lady of Star Trek". She and Gene Roddenberry were married in Japan on August 6, 1969, after the cancellation of the Star Trek: The Original Series. They had one son together, Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, Jr., born in 1974.
