For her weekly Twilight livestream, Grace Potter boldly went to the set of the original Star Trek series on Aug. 3 to perform an out-of-this-world set of acoustic tunes.
After opening with an a capella take on the Star Trek theme song, Potter offered a slew of space-themed covers including “Fly Me To The Moon,” “Rocket Man” and “Space Cowboy.”
In fact, the only Potter original of the evening was her closing version of “Stars,” as originally heard on her 2012 album The Lion the Beast the Beat.
Check out a screengrab and full setlist below:
Aug. 3, 2020
Star Trek Theme: Where No Man Has Gone Before, Supersonic Rocket Ship, When You Wish Upon a Star, Fly Me to the Moon, Rocket Man, I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen, Eachother, Space Cowboy, Stars

Should have never disbanded the Nocturnals. Such a great band.

Not really a fan or a Trekkie, just an older guy who loved the original show as a kid, but I think it’s pretty cool, nice job Grace… though you should have been wearing the red Star Trek dress!
