    The series' opening theme has lyrics that were never used (although they were published in the book "The Making of Star Trek", by Stephen J. Whitfield). They were written by Gene Roddenberry, not so that they would be sung on-screen (which he never intended or even wanted), but so that he could take a co-writer credit and receive a residual payments for the theme's use alongside the theme's composer, Alexander Courage. Roddenberry did this nearly a year after the show was first aired, taking advantage of a contract clause that Courage claimed not to have been aware of. Although Courage never took the matter to court, he expressed resentment on numerous occasions to the way Roddenberry "swindled" 50% of the popular theme's royalties from him. Roddenberry's response was, "Hey, I have to get some money somewhere. I'm sure not going to get it out of the profits of Star Trek." After the first season of Star Trek: The Original Series, the two never worked together again - although the music has been used in various forms in many of the spin-off projects.
