'Star Trek' the original first encounter, as 'sung' by coloratura soprano Loulie Jean Norman the first two seasons (then re-recorded with her voice edited out for the show’s 3rd season, apparently so the producers could avoid paying her further royalties).....
here is another version of the song...
Gene Roddenberry (original creator of Star Trek) wrote them (below), not to be used in the series, but simply to boldly receive payment for half of the song’s performance royalties as co-composer. Or so it goes.
The rim of the star-light
Is wand'ring in star-flight
He'll find in star-clustered reaches
Strange love a star woman teaches.
His journey ends never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.
Next, 'Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987–94)....
'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' (1993–99) was next
Moving right along we go to warp drive to introduce the next three series...engage...
The following two are actually prequels to the original.
Firstly is Star Trek: Enterprise (2001–05)
Lastly is 'Star Trek: Discovery', or ST:D for short. (Captain Kirk knows what I'm inferring *wink wink nod nod*).
I honestly do not know much about it. Discovering alien 'love' and how to protect oneself?
That should be interesting. The doctor aboard should have detailed procedures with all known encountered races/species. Hey, whatever floats your starship. I don't judge.
Anyways, you can click on the underscored above for further information.
(The series debut will be aired on CBS, September 24, 2017. Further episodes will be a pay-for on CBS All Access....what a marketing scheme, huh? Draw you in, then you must pay! *screams* CON! COoOoON!! ;)
