It had happened on Christmas Eve in the year
2991 aboard the starship USS Goodyear,
While it was patrolling the Snobel space
Sector,where the one star within the face
Of the ship shines brightest all year.
Each and every time the ship's commanding
Officer,Captain Jonathan Ridding
Had looked at that one star,he had suddenly
Realized that he would rather be
Back home on the planet Earth and spending
The entire holiday season with his family.
But that wasn't meant to be,
For his crew has been assigned to chart
Each and every star within the heart
Of that one portion of the entire galaxy.
Then suddenly,he realized that Christmastime
Would always be in his heart all the time,
Even if he was no longer on Earth.
That fact alone is at least worth
All the gold on Earth in this present time.
