Robert Picardo has showcased his pipes on Star Trek several times
Robert Picardo, who portrayed the Emergency Medical Hologram on Star Trek: Voyager, is an accomplished singer, and the producers incorporated the Broadway star’s vocal abilities into several episodes of the series. Who can forget “You Are My Sunshine,” the duet he sang with Jeri Ryan’s character Seven of Nine?
He not only uses his talent onscreen, though, as he showed onstage at a Star Trek convention back in 2006. It was after the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise, and for the first time in a long time, there was no new or ongoing Star Trek series on television. Picardo good-naturedly assured the audience that he wasn’t blaming Enterprise for that fact before he parodied “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” using lyrics that only a fan of the franchise will understand and appreciate.
Robert Picardo is a master at parodying lyrics
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” isn’t the only song Picardo changed the lyrics to during his set onstage. He did an outstanding job reworking “16 Tons” into a good-natured complaint about the number of hours he spent working on the set of Voyager.
"16 hours and what do you getAnother day of shooting on the Voyager setSaint Peter don’t you call me because I can’t goI owe my soul to the Voyager show"
And if you’re looking for more of Picardo’s humor, you should subscribe to his Youtube channel where he posts technobabble (a recitation of lines he had to memorize as the EMH), shares moments from Eva the Diva, Your Future in Love with Alphonso where he gives love “advice,” and so much more. Though he has posted a couple of his singing moments, he doesn’t ordinarily sing for the channel, but he does give you plenty of reasons to laugh which is exactly what his character did on Star Trek: Voyager.
