    Yes I have lyrics to the TNG theme...

    “Beverly...and Geordi too,
    All flying ‘round on Star Trek today.”

    :D

    For Voyager, me and my friend came up with, "We are lost, and we don't know where we are..." and that's all we came up with. Probably for the best.

    The melody of the Voyager theme always reminded me of "Home for the Holidays," so those are the lyrics I hear in my head.

    Yes, but they're not complimentary.

    Absolutely not. It would cheapen Goldsmith's big, testosterone-soaked Trek macho-symphonies. I think we can all agree that old Jerry was the most ambitious musician ever involved in Star Trek.

    :lol::lol::lol: Well, excuse the hell out of me, then! :lol::lol::lol: Because I wrote lyrics to the Voyager theme, way-back-when.

    Voyager, it's a lonely course you travel
    As on you fly, and on you fly, and on you fly for home
    Distant stars, they will guide you on your journey
    As on you fly, and on you fly for home
    No one on Earth has ever seen what you've seen
    How many years 'til they walk where you've been?
    Through distant stars and through nebulae you travel
    As on you fly, and on you fly for home
    Fly on, Voyager, fly!

    I thought the Voyager theme *was* "Star Beyond Time," that Roddenberry wrote?

    I found the song that says it the best, either in terms of making my own lyrics, or something more controversial but I won't go there, hehe:

    No, the Voyager theme was by Goldsmith.

    Don't get me wrong; your lyrics are pretty and poetic. But no matter what the lyrics are, putting them in a Star Trek orchestra is like putting an elevator in an outhouse; it simply doesn't belong no matter how you do it.

    Same. At a certain point during Voyager's theme, I would sing:

    We... will... suck... more
    Than any Star Trek has before!
    Oh yes, we will
    Oh yes, we will
    We will
