A New Mission: The Ballad of Commodore Decker (TOS: The Doomsday Machine)

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

The odds were a million to one
And I was that one
The beast would swallow up things whole
and I was left stunned

It swallows up entire worlds— it must be destroyed
anything left in its path becomes part of the void

So I have got a new mission—
I'll command this crew
the beast must be defeated if
it’s the last thing I do

With great abandon it attacked my ship
Was left with battered sails
The monster’s skin: neutronium
The beast was quite a whale

Left my crew on a class M— so they would stay alive
Was to go down with the ship, but only I survived

So I have got a new mission—
I'll command this crew
the beast must be defeated if
it’s the last thing I do

And so I must, sing my last hurrah
I have lost my crew
I take this launch as a loss
I bid goodbye to you

Cannot pierce it from outside— got too thick a skin
I’ll ram this ship down the gullet, destroy it from within

I have got a new mission—
I will command this crew
the beast must be defeated if
it’s the last thing I do
