When I was a child I tuned in to a beautiful fantasy
Humans and Vulcans at peace, in the cosmic community
I'd look up to the sky at night And I'd ask myself could it be right Are there planets like ours around faraway stars Or are we all alone on our planet Earth home?

Time marches on and astronomers hone their technology
Point their scopes to the sky with an eye to unraveling the mystery
