My reason for posting this at this time may be clear to some and terminally foggy for others. If you fall in the 2nd catagory I'm sorry!! At any rate even if you do fall in catagory #2 I hope that you can enjoy this offering anyway. So, here we go:

Star Trek "Enterprise"

The series' theme song, a pop song written by Diane Warren and sung by Russell Watson, was a marked contrast to the sweeping instrumental themes used in all other Star Trek series. It was also the first such theme not to have been composed specially for Star Trek, having previously appeared (performed by Rod Stewart) in the film Patch Adams (1998).
Like other aspects of the series, the theme song polarized fans. Online petitions were signed demanding its removal from the titles. A new, more upbeat arrangement of the theme song was introduced for the third season, but this did not assuage the song's critics, and elicited criticism from some who liked the original version.
The song was known by several titles, "Where My Heart Will Take Me." is the actual name of the song, although some fans refer to it as "Faith of the Heart" (the title from Patch Adams). However, the official soundtrack CD for Enterprise, as well as all releases of the song by Watson, give it the new title of "Where My Heart Will Take Me." Only parts of the first and second verse are heard in the opening credits; a longer recording by Watson exists and was released on the soundtrack CD.
Throughout the show's run, there was extensive Internet speculation as to whether the theme song and opening credits would be changed. This speculation was fueled in October 2004 when the official website startrek.com posted an opening credits sequence in which Scott Bakula recites a modified version of the famous "Space, the final frontier..." speech (with the phrase "where no human has gone before" in place of "where no man" or "where no one"), accompanied by "Archer's Theme", the instrumental used as the closing credits music for the series. Around this same time an alternate version of the opening credits using music from Star Trek Generations and carrying a "Paramount Television Operations" notation, made the rounds on file sharing networks; this too was never adopted and there are doubts that this version was a genuine Paramount creation.
The two-part episode "In a Mirror, Darkly", which takes place within the Mirror Universe, featured a unique opening credits sequence and music intended to capitalize on the alternate universe setting.
Four different end credits versions were created during the show's run, although these were not seen in the original UPN broadcasts. The premiere episode, "Broken Bow" ended with an instrumental version of "Where My Heart Will Take Me" heard on this occasion only. Beginning with the second episode, "Fight or Flight", and continuing for the rest of the show's run, an instrumental piece entitled "Archer's Theme" was heard. The arrangement of "Archer's Theme" as heard in "Fight or Flight" differed from that used in the rest of the series. The two-parter, "In a Mirror, Darkly", reprised that episode's unique opening credits music. The syndicated release of "Broken Bow" replaces the instrumental "Where My Heart Will Take Me" with the standard "Archer's Theme" version.



"Where My Heart Will Take Me."

Composer: Diane Warren

sung by: Russell Watson

It's been a long road
Getting from there to here
It's been a long time
But my time is finally near

And I can feel the change in the wind right now
Nothing's in my way
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No they're not gonna hold me down

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith, I've got faith, faith of the heart

It's been a long night
Trying to find my way
Been through the darkness
Now I've finally had my day

And I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No they're not gonna change my mind

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith, I've got faith, faith of the heart

I know that we're so cold
We've seen the darkest days
But now the winds I feel
Are only winds of change
I've been through the fire
I've been through the rain
But I'll be flying, oh yeah

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith, I've got faith, faith of the heart

It's been a long road
