Is this the Enterprise theme that could have been?
 
It’s no secret that the Enterprise theme tune was not hugely popular, but for quite some time it was rumoured that the theme would in fact be Wherever You Will Go by The Calling. The song was used in promotional adverts on UPN at the time, leading to conjecture that it would also be the […]

Although Braga talks on the Blu-rays about how the theme was "Beautiful Day" by U2 for the longest time. So who knows where this theme would have fit in terms of consideration. (If at all.)

I am one of the few people who likes the Enterprise opening. That said, having U2 would have been cool. The Calling, not so much.

Beautiful Day would've been fantastic! This version is okay enough - better than the godawful dreck we got.

The "In A Mirror, Darkly" opening was perfect.

This song is way better in terms of the actual music, but the lyrics don't fit the show at all. Faith of the Heart wasn't the best song in the world, but it was appropriate given the content of the opening credits and the hurdles Starfleet had to get over.

The people who make the promos for a show are not the same people who make the show itself. It's the network's publicity department that would've handled them. So the fact that this song was used in promos does not in any way suggest that the show's makers ever considered using it.

That said, while I've never had a problem with "Faith of the Heart" (at least, not the season 1-2 arrangement), I always did quite like "Wherever You Will Go."

I suspect anything but an insturmental opening would have displeased a portion of the fanbase. I don't mind the song as it does suit the theme of getting to the stars.

But at the end of the day it's the opening credits, ENT had far bigger concerns than the opening credits. I watch a show for the show itself not what music they play during credits.

I believe that "Archer's Theme" was intended to be the main theme for the show, but then the studio wanted a song instead of something insturmental?

"Wherever You Will Go" is a fine pop song and all, but who the heck would its "you" have referred to in the Trek sense? :confused: I don't believe this theory for a moment. :p
