The first two notes of the Theme from Star Trek (which actually has words, written by Gene Roddenberry. And yes, they are deliciously horrid lyrics) is a rising minor 7th. This is the same interval in The Winner Takes it All. It is also the same interval in 'Ma Coeur a Ta Voix Doux,' the famous aria from Saint-Saens' opera 'Samson et Delilah.' Saint-Saens was also gay. But what do you expect from a French composer who's first name is Camille?
Not much else I can say to that. Well done, sir.
