Enterprise theme song switch
 
Everyone has an opinion on this series wether it's the ship design, plot points, or the fact they named the ship "Enterprise".

I was wondering if anyone else would think if the series intro and outro would've been better if they swapped the songs. So instead having the instrumental music playing during the intro and having the vocals playing on the end credits.

Thoughts?

Apparently I'm in the minority here, but I never minded the Faith of the Heart theme. It seemed to capture the essence of man making that first plunge into deep space exploration well enough. Regardless if you like it or not, who cares? Can anyone honestly say they do or don't watch a show because of the theme song during the credits? There's plenty to be critical of regarding this show than the theme that no one watched beyond the first few times anyways.

I also didn't mind the theme song, I don't watch or not watch shows because of a theme song/tune. The only wrong step I would say they made was changing it for S3-4.

I don't like "Faith of the Heart" much, but the end-credits theme is fine. It fits the show and the characters.

The song is fine, but I don't think it fits what was supposed to be an epic space adventure show.

I think it might have been cool to adapt the TAS theme. ;)

Not a fan of "Faith of the Heart", I would have preferred an instrumental for the opening credits. If it were to be the end credit music, though, it would need to be punched up a bit.

I hated the song. It was too much like "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century."

Of course far worse than the song was the virtual lack of anything but American achievements, but that has been discussed before.

I never really felt strongly either way about the theme song. Besides when I rewatch episodes on DVD now, I fast forward over the intro. OK it was the square peg as far as theme songs go, but it wasn't a horrible song. If they took the same melody and made it an instrumental, I bet no one would have minded.

I liked the theme straight out of the box and still play it to this day. I played it at the party for our 25th anniversary (11 years ago) because it fit the occasion so well.

I loved the theme, I do prefer the slower first one to the more pop oriented second.

What they should have switched is having the faster one for seasons 1 and 2 and the slower one for seasons 3 and 4.

In season 5 they dump it and have Russel Watson singing Beyond Antares to a rock beat.

The outro music had lyrics... sung by Mayweather.

I love that song.
A year ago I also had it as a theme at my wedding.

Try and top that!:techman:
