Poll of the Week: Opening Credits Music

Poll of the Week: Opening Credits Music

  1. 1. What would be the perfect song to play over the opening credits of a TV show featuring your current ship?

    • Eww, gross. No words, only instrumental! (Fine, you are allowed your opinion even if it's wrong.)

    • I've got the perfect song and it goes a little something like this... (Tell us below in the comments!)

The universe of Star Trek has given us some beautiful pieces of music. These iconic works of art embody the vastness of space and the wandering spirit of our favorite heroes as they traipse through the galaxy each week. The warbling tones of The Original Series reminded us of the other-worldly nature of their journey among the stars. The Next Generation brought a brassy and unforgettable tune that energized us for the story ahead. Each piece fit into an amazing tapestry of audible delight. And don't get us started on the movies!

When Enterprise aired, however, many fans were split on the inclusion of music with lyrics - Russel Watson's "Where My Heart Will Take Me". For some, it is the perfect reflection of the explorer's creed. It reminds us that the intrepid explorers are on a mission that is led by their beating hearts. It is why they are out there among the stars and why we watch their exploits with such rapt attention. For others, it's something to be banished from memory.

For our poll this week, we invite you to imagine that the ship or installation you serve on is the setting for a Star Trek television show. What would be the music playing over the opening credits? Let us know what music reflects the culture and ethos of your ship!

I would like for USS Arrow something like this music. A little Idyllic I know, but... It´s my liking. 🥳

For me personally I think instrumental suits the Atlantis but it’s gotta be this piece.

But also

This.

I actually like the Enterprise theme song. Please don't throw things at me!

Back when I was on the Columbia I made the following intro credits view and set it to Mr. Mister's "Kyrie".  The lyrics of the song repeat the phrase "kyrie eleison" which in English means "Lord, have mercy." I thought the concept of looking for a deity's blessing on your travels was a nice theme that went well with the exploration of the far reaches of the galaxy and venturing into the unknown that was our ship's assignment. 

As far as the Gorkon goes, I believe our theme song would more appropriately be party-oriented - something upbeat and catchy. Something like "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO. 😀

I do love me an instrumental, something preferably with a lovely cello mainline and a nice deep bass to communicate the fathomless expanse of space

After discovering that Faith of the Hearth was the song of the end credits of Patch Adams, it fits me even less. I particularly like the composer Max Richter and I think that November from the 0:45 minute would be great for Thor. Obviously for an opening credit that should not last more than a minute, it can be remixed to make the in crescendo faster.

I'm torn between something with quintessential Star Trek anthemic melancholy... and a straight up bop.

I mentioned it in our OOC chat about this but this one is my vote for the ARROW. (It's also on Quentin's personal IC playlist lol)
