OK, OK, it’s fess up time. I am a Star Trek geek or Trekkie or Trekker or whatever. But, even if you’re not into Sci-Fi, you’ll still feel emotionally uplifted by this clip’s musical masterpiece. Hell, even an emotion denying Vulcan would regard this a feel good medley.
What we’ll be ear-witnessing, here, is a five minute retrospective… representative of this five-decade-old franchise’s small and large screen theme songs.
As the soundtrack to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s vision / his spirit of interstellar amity / diplomacy, this also serves as a reminder that we can apply such sentiments to our more down to Earth matters. Additionally, as is true with Gene’s own screenplays and those of his writers, too, this clip also functions on multiple levels.
Starting with the orchestra, we witness multiple hundreds of folks singing and playing in harmony.
Beyond that, Star Trek scenarios do remind us that no matter how formidable unfriendly adversaries may appear… no matter how fiercely they may wage their wars against humanity, the righteous, indomitable human spirit can and will prevail.
To e.g. that… if fantasy’s futuristic Earthlings have been able to repeatedly outwit the Borg, why shouldn’t we view our own reality’s worldwide, recalcitrant leaders as equally inept?
More to the point, humanity’s very survival depends on our ability to channel that Star Trek / Roddenberry winning, positive attitude:
Resistance is NOT Futile!
