    My song is strongly DS9 themed, but yours can be from any of the tv shows or movies. Engage!

    "Hologram"
    (sung to the tune of "Piano Man" by Billy Joel)

    It's three o'clock on a Saturday
    The regular crowd shuffles in
    An old klingon is there sitting next to me
    Makin' love to his bloodwine and gin

    He says, "Son, can you play me a memory
    I'm not really sure how it goes
    But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
    When I wore a warrior's robes"

    La la la, di da da
    La la, di da da da dum

    Sing us a song, you're the Hologram
    Sing us a song tonight
    Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
    And you've got us feelin' alright

    Now Quark at the bar is a friend of mine
    He gets me my drinks for free
    And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
    But there's someplace that he'd rather be
    He says, "Vic, I believe this is killing me"
    As the smile ran away from his face
    "Well I'm sure that I could be a holo-star
    If I could get out of this place"

    Oh, la la la, di da da
    La la, di da da da dum

    Now Jake is a upcoming journalist
    Who never had time for a wife
    And he's talkin' with Garak, who sells lots of fabric
    And probably will be for life

    And Miss Leeta is practicing politics
    As the Ferengi slowly get stoned
    Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
    But it's better than drinkin' alone

    Sing us a song you're the Hologram
    Sing us a song tonight
    Well we're all in the mood for a melody
    And you got us feeling alright

    It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
    And the Captain gives me a smile
    'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
    To forget about life for a while
    And the holosuite sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer
    And they sit at the bar and put Lat in my jar
    And say, "Man, what are you doin' here?"

    Oh, la la la, di da da
    La la, di da da da dum

    Sing us a song you're the Hologram
    Sing us a song tonight
    Well we're all in the mood for a melody
    And you got us feeling alright

    I already did this a while ago, but here goes:

    Cardassians (sung to the tune of 'Israelites' by Desmond Dekker and Leslie Kong)

    Get up in the morning, get my weapon ready,
    To fight and liberate all of Bajor
    From, the Cardiassians, yeah

    Get up in the morning, get my weapon ready,
    To fight and liberate all of Bajor
    From, the Cardiassians, yeah

    My wife and my kids, they're no longer with me,
    She's now one of Gul Dukat's comfort ladies!
    Oh, those Cardiassians

    Look, my life expectancy short, my chance of survival uncertain
    I hope to die and see the Prophets soon!
    After I kill me some Cardassians, yeah

    I won't live long to see my people free, I know
    Bat at least I'll have freed all of Bajor
    From the slavery of them Cardassians!

    (Instrumental break)

    Get up in the morning, get my weapon ready,
    To fight and liberate all of Bajor
    From, the Cardiassians, yeah

    My wife and my kids, they're no longer with me,
    She's now one of Gul Dukat's comfort ladies!
    Oh, those Cardiassians

    Look, my life expectancy short, my chance of survival uncertain
    I hope to die and see the Prophets soon!
    After I kill me some Cardassians, yeah

    I won't live long to see my people free, I know
    But at least I'll have freed all of Bajor
    From the slavery of them Cardassians!
    From the slavery, the slavery, the slavery of them Cardassians
    (I won't stop 'till my people are free)
    From the slavery, the slavery, the slavery of them Cardassians
    I wanna kill a ton of them spoonheads...

    KIRK! AAH-AAAAH!
    Savior of the universe!

    KIRK! AAH-AAAAH!
    He'll save every one of us!

    KIRK! AAH-AAAAH!
    He's a miracle!

    KIRK! AAH-AAAAH!
    King of the impossible!

    He's for every one of us
    Stand for every one of us
    He'l fight with a mighty hand
    Every Gorn, every Klingon
    Every Khan, it's the Mighty Kirk!

    (What do you mean, "James Kirk is approaching"???)
    (Open fire, all disruptors!)
    (Dispatch a Bird of Prey to retrieve his body!)

    KIRK! AAH-AAAAH!

    (Kirk! Still alive, old friend?)

    KIRK! AAH-AAAAH!
    He'll save every one of us!

    Just a man, with a man's courage
    You know he's nothing but a man
    Who doesn't like to lose
    No one but the pure of heart
    can beat the Kobayashi Maru
    Oh-oh, oh-oh

    KIRK!

    I would love to see a Star Trek chronologically accurate version of “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel.

    It’s ambitious, but I believe in you guys. :techman:
