    I read the Star Trek lyrics, I think they made the right decision to not use them.


    The screaming women fits better, it can be recreated:

    The Trek lyrics were shit and only written so Roddenberry could take half the royalty credit from Alexander Coursge, who wrote the theme. Never intended to be used.

    Supposedly Gene Roddenberry was a greedy pig who hated seeing anyone make money off Star Trek that he couldn't get his hands on. So when Alexander Courage penned the now-famous Star Trek instrumental theme music, Roddenberry dashed off these lyrics so that he would get a share of the theme music $$ from NBC.

    No matter where they go

    They are known as the couple.
    They're never seen alone

    So they're known as the couple.

    As I've indicated

    They are never quite separated,
    They are peas in a pod.
    Don't you think that it's odd.

    Their habits, I confess

    None can guess with the couple.
    If one says no it's yes,

    More or less, with the couple.

    But they're laugh provoking;
    Yet they really don't know they're joking.
    Don't you find, when love is blind It's kind of odd.

    How did this show last 14 years? All the principals are now dead , I think these lyrics may cause cancer / heart problems. Here's the full version.

    This one's kind of nice. Here's a fun fact, a few months ago NASA requested submissions for scary / evil names for features on Pluto. I suggested "Gladys Kravitz". No word on my success however.
