[show]According to Robert H. Justman in his book "Star Trek: The Real Story", this show's famous theme was not the first one written. Lalo Schifrin had written a main theme, but creator and executive producer Bruce Geller decided that it was inappropriate.

That throwaway musical cue became one of the most famous and recognizable television show themes in history.
