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