The original manuscripts for the much-loved music to sci-fi TV series STAR TREK are being auctioned next month (DEC03).

The world-famous tunes - which include WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE and SPACE! THE FINAL FRONTIER - are set to fetch almost $40,000 (GBP25,000) when they go under the hammer at SOTHEBY'S in London.

They were composed by American ALEXANDER COURAGE, and will go up for auction alongside draft scores by other composers Beethoven, BACH, MOZART and CHOPIN.

Sotheby's expert SIMON MAGUIRE says, "These are one of the original drafts for one of TV's best-loved series."
