    I could not come up with just one. I ended with a 3 way tie. Firefly's The Ballad of Serenity, Enterprise's Faith of the Heart & Red Dwarf's The Fun Song (The Red Dwarf Theme). I could not find another name for the Red Dwarf tune. All 3 of mine are has words but can be an instrumental.

    Surprised "Dr Who" wasn't included in your list Yep, the "Red Dwarf" closing theme is good, with it's upbeat melody it would have been a good mood-setter as the opening theme for the show rather than the sombre one they used.

    My 2nd tier is any of the Doctor Who themes and 2001 A Space Odyssey. All are close and more like 1 & 1A but I had already listed 3 as the best rather than one. Also if I remember they used the Fun Song as the opening theme later on around season 3 or 4. I could be wrong about this.

    There are so many memorable themes from Sci-Fi TV shows, but for me the most memorable of them is from the ABC-TV series from the 60's The Invaders.

    I love the Doctor Who theme, despite all the versions that have been used over the years that sort of eerie quality seems to remain. And if you'll call it sci-fi, I really enjoy The Walking Dead's. I usually fast-forward credits, but I watch The Walking Dead's every time.

    The best theme song sung in an alien language was the one from Lexx--the song of the Brunen Jee (sp?)

    I love "The Ballad of Serenity" from Firefly. A great song that reflects a great show.
