Roy Orbison (23 April 19366 December 1988; age 52) was also credited as the performer of "Ooby Dooby" in the film Star Trek: First Contact. Furthermore, the use of the performance was granted courtesy of his production company, Orbison Records, Inc..

In real life, Orbison was a Star Trek fan, and often opened his concerts with his band jamming to The Original Series theme by Alexander Courage. [1]

The Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Forsaken" was originally titled "Only the Lonely" after Orbison's song. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion (p. 58))
