  • MP3 Clip
  • BUY THIS SONG ONLINE VIA APPLE I-TUNES Arigon Starr
Wanted peace in her time
No more war - no more crime
But her timing was wrong
And the man who loved her would someday cry

CHORUS
Oh, Edith Keeler must die
Oh, she will never know why
Fate and future depend on her plans
And demands.


Her ideas were so bold
How could she have foretold
She'd be loved by a man
Who knew he'd have to leave her behind


CHORUS


Although his love was unspoken
There were sparks in his eyes
But he'd return
To the skies


Was her life really key?
Did his love set her free?
Some things you cannot change
Destiny can be cruel and unkind


CHORUS

Fiddle & Mandolin: Don Herron

Background Chorus: Chuck Mead, Don Herron, Nicholas Peters, Gay Wahpecome, Janet Holmberg

ABOUT EDITH KEELER MUST DIE

Edith Keeler is a character from the original Star Trek series. In an episode by Harlan Ellison (a very famous science fiction writer), Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock travel back in time to rescue Dr. McCoy, who has fatally altered the timeline of Earth by saving the life of social worker Edith Keeler. Joan Collins plays Edith -- it's classic Trek! Kirk, of course, falls in love with her before realizing he must let her die in order to save all mankind. This episode was recently named in TV GUIDE's Top Ten of all Star Trek related shows. It's unforgettable! Don Herron really fires this up with his amazing fiddle work.

After going back in time, Captain Kirk is forced to explain Spock's strange appearance.

Policeman: Well?
Capt. Kirk: You're a police officer. I recognize the traditional accoutrements.
Spock: You were saying you'd have no trouble explaining it.
Capt. Kirk: (describing Spock) My friend... is obviously Chinese. I see you've noticed the ears; well, they're... easy to explain...
Spock: Perhaps the unfortunate accident I had as a child...
Capt. Kirk: ...the unfortunate accident he had as a child. He caught his head in a mechanical... rice picker... but, fortunately, there was an American, uh, missionary living close by who was a, uh, skilled, uh, plastic surgeon in civilian life who -...
Policeman: Alright, alright. Drop those bundles and put your hands on the wall.
