I am an ASCAP member myself, but I believe lyric music pays far higher royalties than instrumental music. I'm glad Roddenberry was able to make such an arrangement, despite its evident overtness. I'm sure the royalties from the music helped sustain him through the lean years of the 70s.
Lean years..I wonder how much he made from the Animated Series.
Probably not much. Animated shows weren't covered by any guild agreements in the 70s, so it was entirely up to the production companies how much to pay. Also it only lasted 22 episodes, not enough to be stripped weekly. Without syndication fees, the show likely did not make much for itself either.
