Five Year Mission is the collaboration of five science fiction fans who endeavor to write and record a song for each of the episodes of the original Star Trek series from the 1960s. We love the show, and we wanted to create something that we could share with other fans and something we would have a blast doing.
Five Year Mission is:
Noah Butler – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Andy Fark – Percussion
Patrick O’Connor – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Mike Rittenhouse – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Chris Spurgin – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
What we do: We write and play songs. Specifically, we take episodes of the original Star Trek and write songs for them. Sometimes the songs tell stories, sometimes they’re about one character, and sometimes they’re totally obscure. We never quite know what’s going to happen with a tune until we write it.
The Mission: Our goal is to take every episode of the original Star Trek, write a song about it, record it, and play it. In the end, there will be five full-length CDs full of Star Trek goodness for all to enjoy.
Support the mission, and of course, live long and prosper!
