Nine great cover versions of the theme from Star Trek Voyager

See also

In some ways, it's one of the forgotten gems of the Star Trek universe, both musically and as a show overall. But Star Trek Voyager had a respectable seven year run and a fantastic main title theme written by the legendary Jerry Goldsmith.

That theme continues to live on across the internet, inspiring musicians to create their own versions of Goldsmith's great melody - and then post the results on YouTube.

Here are nine great cover versions of Jerry Goldsmith's theme from Star Trek Voyager, performed on a variety of instruments, all of them well worth hearing.

1. Flukulele

  • This flute/ukulele duet is surprisingly perfect. It's simple, straightforward, and utterly charming.

2. Virtual Pipe Organ

  • Solemn, reverent version that sounds like it could be a prelude at a church service. Has anyone started a church of Star Trek yet?

3. Solo Piano

  • Almost a new age version, I can imagine this one fitting right in on one of those old Windham Hill sampler records.

4. Dance Remix

  • Play this one next time you're hosting a house party.

5. Strauss Waltz

  • If you're into an older style of dancing, here's a classical remix. This one comes from a collection titled Mozart TV, which also includes the theme from Friends done in the style of Vivaldi and the Jeopardy Think Music in the style of Handel.

6. With Lyrics

  • Some guy, wearing a Star Trek uniform, sings his own lyrics to the theme. Everybody join in: "Voyager, please come home."

7. Electric Guitar

  • Head banging version. One guy on an electric guitar. It's actually pretty great. Also, check out the death metal cover of Danny Elfman's Batman Theme.

8. Guitar, Ukulele and Banjo

  • With more original lyrics. Certainly a unique version.

9. 10 Hours

  • For those of you who really, really, REALLY like the theme, here is ten straight hours of it.

I love the internet.
