boldly go

you hung upon my ceiling
sailed between the stars
explored strange new worlds
to teach us more of ours

eagerly i was stealing
glimpses of a hopeful future
this bold new enterprise
and tribbles that would purr

our hopes you were annealing
through missions of this premier crew
the original starshippers
people we felt we knew

i couldn’t shake the feeling
inspired by your treks
that soon we all would work
in worlds both near and far

looking up at our zenith
red blue and gold all greyscale
you’d beam into our lives
aboard our tiny speck

transported to other worlds
into tales both old and new
you made us feel at home
as though we had joined the crew

and after these fifty years
through all the crews and seasons
a good ten mission’s time
may your future continue anew

boldly blazing new trails
guiding us with new tales
to places we have
never gone before
