agreed, i credit the producers for inviting her to reprise her role as the Enterprise computer voice, but for me it just further solidifies why Mr Shatner should have made an appearance also. it's a missed opportunity not having him with Nimoy :(

Majel remained actively involved with Trek through all the tv shows and movies and it's rather fitting that her Trek career began with TOS and ended with TOS based movie :)

Sad day indeed. I guess I liked her best alongside Dr. McCoy, but Laxuana Troi was also a great role.
