Don't Fix It

If you haven’t figured out I’m a dork by now…

Say, when’s the last time I totally geeked out on you guys? Let me check… why, not since May! So we’re well past due.

To fulfill the quota, here’s the opening theme to Star Trek: Voyager, composed by no less a luminary than Jerry Goldsmith. And to make it even more legit, here’s a story: I took some lessons with an accomplished violinist who was a Voyager fan. Whenever he watched the show, his father would come in, sit for the theme, and then leave. He just really loved the opening. And why not? It’s sweepingly awesome!

About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.

  1. He’s not the only one. I was lukewarm to the show itself, but I loved the theme song (though not the sequence, you know, where Voyager moves through a cloud in space and swirls around behind Voyager like they weren’t in a vacuum? They’re in a vacuum! Why anyone would…but perhaps I’ve geeked too much).
