Does this count?

Well Emily, you asked. Alas, it's not really a picture of space. It's a picture of a model, probably hanging on wires, on top of a rough artist's conception of a non-existent planet on a black background with a couple of stars. Nevertheless, this is the picture I saw in the opening credits of a limited-run television series that had a large part in warping me as a child. (Pun intended.) I now boldly go to explore strange new worlds and seek out new life. A TV show. Go figure.
