Today's Tune: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" By Alexander Courage

The first episode of the original Star Trek television series to be broadcast, was aired on September 8, 1966. The series is a science fiction show that takes place in outer space, and was created by American screenwriter and producer Gene Roddenbery.

"The Man Trap" was actually the 6th to be produced, including 2 pilots (1 failed, 1 aired during season 1), but was the episode chosen to be shown first. "Where No Man Has Gone Before" is the instrumental theme music written by Alexander Courage, who also created the woosh sound heard when the Starship Enterprise flies by during the opening credits. The second pilot episode uses the same title. Canadian actor and writer William Shatner, who starred as the character Captain James T. Kirk, provided the opening monologue that is added, creating the "Theme From Star Trek".
