In her first UK concert, Spanish opera soprano Laura Ruhí Vidal warms up the Rainer Hersch Orkestra audience with a surprise performance of the Theme from Star Trek.

Composed by Alexander Courage, the original TV theme was sung by Loulie Jean Norman. Here are Gene Roddenberry’s unsung lyrics that he apparently only wrote to get a piece of the action in royalties:

Beyond
The rim of the star-light
My love
Is wand’ring in star-flight
I know
He’ll find in star-clustered reaches

I know
His journey ends never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.
