(originally titled "Where No Man Has Gone Before" by Alexander Courage)
Space: the final frontier
These are the voyages of the star ship Enterprise
It's five year mission:
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life and new civilization
To boldly go where no man has gone before!
[TV show used instrumental version, however lyrics exist for the song]
(Lyrics by Gene Roddenberry*)
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.
(* Without Courage's knowledge, Roddenberry wrote lyrics to the theme,
not in the expectation that they would ever be sung,
but in order to claim a 50% share of the music's performance royalties.
Although there was never any litigation, Courage later commented that he considered Roddenberry's
conduct unethical. Roddenberry was quoted as responding,
"Hey, I have to get some money somewhere. I'm sure not gonna get it out of the profits of Star Trek.")
