lyrics

I was working on the Enterprise,
Just the other day,
When some space debris hit the side
And we began to sway,

I went flying through the air,
I went crashing to the floor,
And a thought popped in my head,
That I’m sure you’ve thought before.

CHORUS:
They’ve got tricorders and phasers
On the Enterprise,
But not a single seatbelt
On that ship of massive size,
The technology is baffling,
The advancements truly neat,
But I’d settle for a strap that merely keeps me in my seat.

Had I made a big mistake,
Signing up to join the fleet?
Did my red shirt give them cart blanche
To consistently mistreat?

Would it really take so much
To strap us in at red alert?
So we can spend more time exploring worlds
And less time badly hurt.

CHORUS
They’ve got holodecks and dilithium
On the Enterprise,
But not a single seatbelt
On that ship of massive size,
The technology is baffling,
The advancements truly neat,
But I’d settle for a strap that merely keeps me in my seat.

BRIDGE:
To boldly go where no one’s gone before,
Doesn’t seem like too much fun when you’re laid out on the floor,
A Nader-esque slogan’s what we need
“The Enterprise: unsafe at any speed.”

CHORUS
They’ve got hydrospanners and warp drive
On the Enterprise,
They’ve got replicators and nanites
On the Enterprise,
Parisis Squares and Sick bay beds
And androids who can feel

But they don’t have seatbelts.
(Or bullets to kill the borg.)
