Re: First Season Theme Music Change

Well, the thing to remember is lots of shows sold in to reruns typically will have amended opening credits sequences that sometimes differ from how they were originally broadcast. The same way episodes are sometimes cut to fit a standard for syndication, this might well have been part of the 'package' the original series was sold as in to reruns.

I mean, let's look at the other Trek series. TNG's opening theme was basically the same after the second season, with minor edits and flourishes added through the years; Deep Space Nine and Enterprise had two distinct versions, and Voyager's was the only one that was the same arrangement, instrumentation and performance through its entire run.
