Star Trek: Enterprise – Faith of the Heart

Yes, yes, I know. We don’t like Enterprise. Or we’re not supposed to like Enterprise. (Disclaimer: I actually do like Enterprise.) I wanted to share Faith of the Heart from the opening credits for the first two seasons because they are so well done. Keep scrolling down for an extended mix of the theme song…a cover of the Rod Stewart single sung by Russell Watson.

By the way… the featured pic above is Connor Trinneer (far left) and Scott Bakula (far right) in costume alongside three members of the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) U.S. Navy photo by Chief Journalist Mark O. Piggott.

Faith of the Heart… Enterprise Opening Credits…

But what we all CAN agree on is that the theme song for this installment of the series was mind-blowingly, grab a tissue, pretend you have allergies, deeply moving. Yes, I teared up watching this. No, you don’t have to do the same. I know I’m freakish like that. I remember watching when the space shuttle Challenger exploded and I will never forget. Christa McAuliffe was and is an inspiration to all us ‘regular girls’ that dreams do come true and they are worth the risk.

To me, this encompasses all we love about Star Trek. It’s not just a cool geeky sci-fi series for technonerds, although it is all that. It is also about dreams and visions and hopes about what we can accomplish when we try, when we explore, and when we boldly go where no one has gone before…

Faith of the Heart by Rod Stewart

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
No one’s going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
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 finally have 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
No one’s going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
I’ve got faith
Faith of the heart

I know the wind’s so cold
I’ve seen the darkest days
But now the winds I feel
Are only winds of change

I’ve been through the fire
And I’ve been through the rain
But I’ll be fine

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
No one’s going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
I’ve got faith
Faith of the heart
