Is "Where No Man Has Gone Before" based on a known Trek Tune?
Why yes, yes it is. In my head, it is the full orchestral TMP theme. (Not the TNG version - too fast for what I had in mind.) I have a really lovely image in my head of the Excelsior slowly maneuvering into the berth as that theme plays - one that I plan to recreate photographically in photoshop, alas sans music of cousre. But those of you with the soundtrack can play it as you look at the picture for the full experience.

I must admit taking a nod from BSG in making the theme song the anthem.
