Haha, that's exactly what I was thinking of Homn... that theme really is more suited to a cheesy super hero movie, scifi setting or not.

Don't get me wrong, I liked it... just not for Picard and crew.

Re: The theme song is just atrocious

It could have worked as the theme, after all we are judging it after hearing the TMP theme used for years as the TNG theme. So that can distort our perceptions of it.

Re: The theme song is just atrocious

I think people who moan about Enterprise's theme never sat all the way through DS9's opening sequence. Must have always fallen asleep. Look, the opening of any show has to be taken as a whole. Consider the theme as paired with the images and Enterprise's opening sequence was very well made.

I am proud to say I have sat through it every single time, that's with four complete watch throughs. It actually still gives me the chills.

The only positive upside to Faith of the Heart was how it became a running gag on various Whiskey Media podcasts about ten years later.

A real shame, too... the opening visuals are fantastic, probably my favourite of all five Trek series. Just, that song, man... that song...

The DS9 theme is beautiful.

Re: The theme song is just atrocious

I think the voyager theme is the best out of all, I like the revamped DS9 theme better than it's original version though.

And the enterprise theme is great. I have it on playlist with all my other tracks.

Simply stated, the OP is waltzing on the edge of the trolling line. We closed a similar attack-dog thread in TNG before it broke out into a flame conflict.

I think the OP has been tossed quite some time ago.

I love defending the theme song so I always enjoy these dummy spits at the faith of the heartiverse, LOL
