Last night I was watching "Tomorrow is Yesterday" episode 19 season 1 of Star Trek The Original Series. There was a motif in the soundtrack that seemed to channel the Also Sprach Zarathrusta theme from Kubrik's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Seeing at the TOS was 1967 and the movie was 1968, it had me wondering. I loved Star Trek when it first aired and thought it was the greatest thing ever. I was a total space geek from the beginning of the space race. I had zero interest in the westerns shows that dominated and I do mean saturated American television in those days. In 1968 when I was 10, my grandmother took me to see 2001: A Space Odyssey. God bless her, she was probably utterly baffled by it but I was enthralled. The music from that movie also seeded my love of classical music as well.
