I have to wait until tomorrow night to see it, but can anyone comment on the music? I know about the bit in the end credits, but how was the rest of the score? The opening theme? Any fanfare when they show the Enterprise?
The score was good. There's a new main theme that runs through the movie and is very catchy (I caught myself whistling it!). There is no opening theme as such; the movie has a "teaser segment" with its own music and then a title card with a music cue.

The reveal of the Enterprise is incorporated into the score of the scene that immediately precedes it - it's an organic outgrowth, you'll understand it when you see it. It is perhaps not as... obvious as cue as in TMP, but the music fits the scene perfectly.
Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I swear this is going to be the longest 24 hours until I see this movie. I cannot believe I am so amped up about it. I feel just like I did when TMP opened. I am so envious of those who have seen this movie already - stupid international date line - d'oh!!
