That's sad news. Her Wikipedia page mentions that she has recently completed recording for the new Star Trek film, so it is not the last time that we will hear her voice. I hope they include some type of dedication to her in the movie.
That is a good price for Star Trek. If it wasn't for the fact that my DVD budget for February was already earmarked (and very small) I might have been tempted to pick those up - the original series being the one I am most likely to want to rewatch.
M very kindly supplied me with a set of the 1973-1974 animated show. Been a good few years since I've seen it, used to have the VHS tapes. It's even better than I remembered. Solid scripting, every bit as good as the better parts of the original show. Filmation put in a fair bit of craft relative to saturday morning US cartoons of the era. Amazing how many fans refuse to accept the show exists though (there were not ten years with no Trek between 1969-1979, there were 22 episodes in 73-74 you morons). Sadly, even the booklet has an 'Animated Trek: real or not?' section (yes, really). Of course it's real, I'm watching it. Tsk.
Unlike the original series sets, some decent remastering has been done and -gasp- it actually has a 'play all' function. And audio commentaries!
