Star Trek Creator's Widow Left $US4 Million To Her Dogs

Using money she earned through her voice over work on the Star Trek light dimmer, Majel Roddenberry was able to set up a trust for her dogs to the tune of $US4 million.

A domestic employee named Reinelda Estupinian—the person who cared for the pups —gets $US1 million and the right to live in the mansion with the dogs... Majel claimed Reinelda deserves the massive stack of cash because she "did an excellent job of caring for my animals (giving them comparable or better care than that which I gave them during my lifetime)."

Neeedless to say, the only thing better than being the dog of Gene and Majel Roddenberry is being their son. Apparently he gets $US60 million up front, a Bel-Air mansion, and $US10 million bonuses just for staying alive long enough to reach 35, 40 and 45. That, my friend, could buy you a lot of Star Trek sporks and cologne. But he and the dogs probably get that stuff for free too. So jealous. [TMZ via Boing Boing Gadgets]
