With the use of Majel's voice as the computer, she has secured for herself a permanent place in the Star Trek Universe. The first lady of Trek along with the Great Bird of the Universe, Star Trek will live forever despite the critics' best efforts.

No computer voice, no "trekkyness". 'Nuff said.

If I could have voted for two, I would have voted for the TNG Computer Voice and Lwaxana Troi, but as I only had the choice of one, I voted for Lwaxana Troi. Mainly, this was because it demonstrated her acting ability, as well as her vocal ability, within the TNG era. Aside from everything, I think that she was just a great character. She was the stereotypical embarrassing relative, while also bringing something new. She was also a positive character and her constant comments about Picard's apparent less-than-clean thoughts about her and then seeing Picard's uncomfortable reaction, made the character amusing too and I think that's one of the enduring memories I'll have of Majel Barrett and Lwaxana Troi = Her and Mr. Homn beaming off the ship and an echo saying "Jean Luc, such naughty thoughts". This, as well, of course, as her calling Worf "Mr Woof" and him trying to politely correct her.

I know most of the symbols for the various series (TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT). What does TAS stand for? Does anyone know this one?
