Schumann and Star Trek

Schumann and Star Trek

The frighteningly voluptuous Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine in Star Trek: Voyager. Apparently her character also plays the piano.

"I'm here because Seven of Nine played it in the Episode Human Error."

Whenever someone posts a comment on my YouTube channel I get an email. Mostly they're compliments:

"Absolutely beautiful. I love what you do with this. It's reflective and introspective. I love it and most people always play this too fast. They seem to grind through it."

 

I'd been continually puzzled, though, by this string of comments:

  • "You're a strange looking cat"
  • "Milo dear, that's NOT A GOODI DEA!! Come back here Milo!"
  • "Milo's dream in the nest this song plays I swear makes me cry every damn time :)  

I finally pieced together that the piece had been used in the 1986 Japanese Adventure/Comedy film  The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

I liked this comment: 

"Everyone here is talking about Milo and Otis... and I'm just here because it's a part of my Musicology Assessment."

Today, I got the message about Seven of Nine. It seems that she performed Of Foreign Lands and People in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager. (As an aside, my fabulous adult student Janet - the one who went to the Cliburn Amateur last year and I blogged about it - used to put together the promos for Voyager.) The world today is connected in such strange ways. I never really thought of myself as a Seven of Nine kind of woman. Five out of Ten, maybe. And who could ever have predicted that Schumann would be my connection to Star Trek?
