I loved the Enterprise theme song. It was very stirring. I hated when they changed it in the 2nd season and added the guitar or whatever. It sounded weird after that.

I don't believe we need to worry about lyric driven music. I do think well get some of that classic feel operatic vocalization however.

I think that the song fitted the intro sequence very well, it conveyed the energetic desire to reach out to the stars quite well.
In general, classical music (if I understood a friend of mine who is a musician correctly, movie music is a usually kind of neo-romantic) is the best way to go and especially in TV, it emphasized the significance of Trek.

I think it did too. I didn't hate it. It was good.
I loved the feel of exploration and linking it with NASA and everything that we know the problem is that not what the show was...I really wanted exploration.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVED the opening sequence to Enterprise. Just hated the music they played to it.

Ditto.

Visually the opening sequence was probably the best one ever done - it was just those lyrics.

Yes, it was Robert Goddard, father of modern rocket propulsion.

I've often have played that intro with Tool's Schism and it amazingly works. Intro just isn't long enough
