Sirtis is way to nasal for a computer voice...Sigouney Weaver would be perfect

I think Nana Visitor would be great as the computer voice

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by

Nichelle Nichols would be good! But I can also see Sigouney Weaver and Kathleen Turner as the computer voice. I could also see Judi Dench doing the computer voice.

Or they could go for a male voice. I don't know if it would be good to use one of the Star Trek men who's voices are so recognizable, i.e. Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart or the like. Although there are some good actors out there that are really good with voices. Being silly I would go for Robin Willams LOL But on a more serious note, I could see Kelsey Grammer, Hugh Laurie or even Keifer Sutherland

Interesting topic

Mrs. Roddenberry also passed away shortly after she recorded her computer lines for STXI, so unless they recycle previously recorded lines, her services are no longer possible. I would like to see Nichelle Nichols become the new computer voice.
So what??? Any attempt to piss off the "this isn't your fathers "Star Trek" bigwigs too replace such an iconic "voice" just to replace it makes me know that Paramount wants more Star Wars Trek instead of the franchise with the more HUMAN elament or the idolization of many of the old series that they grew up with. Now it is sure...I will go beat up some guys in a bar and be Captain of my own ugly starship in a few years.


Sorry got WAY off topic. There is NO reason not to use Majels voice since there is so much recording and ways to digitize her vocals nowadays.

Sorry we seem to be making you angry with this topic. I'm not trying to come across as snarky, I am truly sorry that our innocent postulating is making you very mad about something that we have no control over, such as who is in or not in a future movie.


Again, my sincere apologies.


Peace

That is ok. It wasn't the thread that is upsetting. It is this "idea" of changing thaings just for the sake of changing. Like I said, even in fandom in one of the novels that the computer voice was based on Number One, who the young Spock greatly admired. Even though that has been changed in this new timeline, it would be something else I disapprove from this "Abrams approach".

Except it would be sort of creepy.

How would it be creepy???? Just as creepy(?) as hearing Marlon Brando in "Superman Returns"?...Which wasn't creepy at the least.

I will miss Majel Barret's voice for the computer. If I had to choose a new voice for the computer it would be Nichelle Nichols, She has a distinctive voice, smooth, sexy, and not annoying.

Majel Barret Roddenberry is going to be hard to replace. And she has always been the computer voice. It seems wrong to go ahead and just let someone with a whole different voice to just walk in and take over, even if she is dead. I suppose they could use the clips that she had already done over and over again or make the voice of whoever is doing it sound like her. that would be nice.

I've got a few

1. Patrick Stewart
2. Leonard Nimoy
3. Kate Mulgrew

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.... or the one.
