Battlestar / Doctor Who / Star Trek - Total SciFi: Contest - Vote for Favorite SciFi TV Theme Tune

At Total SciFi:

(Please follow the link for complete contest information.)

Vote for your favourite sci-fi TV theme tune – and win great prizes!

From the Theremin-laced tunes of the 1950s to the current trend for more subtle, evocative title music, science fiction shows have given us some truly great theme tunes.

But what is the greatest sci-fi theme tune ever written? Just trying to whittle it down to 10 candidates proved difficult enough, and there are undoubtedly some strong contenders that haven’t made the cut.

Where, we hear you cry, is Knight Rider? Or Stingray? Or Lost in Space? Or Buck Rogers in the 25th Century? Or Enterprise? OK, maybe not Enterprise

However, after several hours of screaming, pushing and sumo-wrestling, we have finally agreed on the following shortlist of 10 candidates. All are theme tunes that are both influential and instantly hummable, and reflect the broad range of theme tunes from the history of SF television, from The Twilight Zone and Star Trek right through to the recent reboot of Battlestar Galactica.

Now we want readers to let us know which is their all-time favourite theme tune from the shortlist below. And as an added incentive, one lucky random winner will bag a cinema voucher, a subscription to the Titan Magazines title of their choice and a goody bag. Your vote counts!


1) Battlestar Galactica (remake)

2) Buffy the Vampire Slayer

3) Doctor Who

4) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

5) Quantum Leap

6) Red Dwarf

7) Star Trek (Original Series)

8) Thunderbirds

9) The Twilight Zone

10) The X-Files

Email your choice to by 18 April 2009, after which we’ll announce the poll winner on Total Sci-Fi.

Don't forget to include your name and address!
