Information Society and Star Trek

Between Gordon Winslow and myself, I’m starting to think we have enough Star Trek music articles to write a book, or at least a Masters Thesis, most likely a pamphlet, on the relationship of Star Trek and popular music. We haven’t even got to the band “T’Pau” yet! Here’s another brick in the wall, Information Society’s 1988 hit What’s on Your Mind (pure energy) which included a sample of Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) from Star Trek, saying “pure energy,” and opened with a sample of Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), also from Star Trek, saying, “It’s worked so far, but we’re not out yet!”

I’m naming my first child Shatner.
