    It's my least favourite Trek (although I've not seen Enterprise), but the Voyager theme is great - somewhat similar to the DS9 theme but more stirring. In fact the opening titles as a whole are great, they really conjure up a sense of adventure and the awesomeness of space travel that the show often failed to live up to.

    I think it is the best Trek since TOS myself but I don't think any show could live up to that title sequence. Incredible.

    I couldnt hum a single note from any of the modern-trek...

    But the love music they play with Spock and the blond chick on that spores planet? Im humming it now!!!

    TOS wins this. The others just have that moronic PAD music

    I doubt there's a soul amongst us who doesn't know Faith of the Heart line by line ;).

    TOS is a cultural icon. A few notes of that one, and almost anyone, trek fan or not, can name it. TNG had a more regal feel to it in my opinion, which from what I've heard was kind of what they were trying to go for with the design of the Ent-D. Enterprise opening theme was a good song, but it didn't feel trek to me. I captured the essence of what many feel trek is about, but it didn't seem to fit with trek to me, atleast not as an opening theme. DS9 and VOY I think had the best opening sequence from both and audio and visual standpoint. Both peices were very commanding, and the cinimatography simply fit the music better then the other shows had been able to do.

    LOL TOS ranks like dead last for me. When I think of ENT's theme, I think about the theme they played over the end credits, which I actually like.

    1. VOY
    2. TNG
    3. ENT (end credits)
    4. DS9
    5. TOS

    Loved them all, but...

    The DS9 theme never fails to send a shiver up my spine!

    Both versions, BTW.

    Voyager is definitely my favourite, works beautifully with the visuals too.

    I always considered the TNG theme to be too simplistic. There's not really a main theme. More like a memorable background part.

    Agreed. Particularly the slower version in the first three years. I never cared for the jazzed up version that was done when Worf joined the show.
