Compiling episode scores? Scotty, we have a problem.

Talk about the La-La Land Records complete TOS scores box seems to have slowed down somewhat, both here and on the FSM forums. That said, I think there are still a small amount of people interested in taking the box set and creating all 80 episode scores from it. This thread is for us.

So, what options do budding music editors have? Well, if you're fortunate enough to have audio rips from the laserdisc, as Neil S. Bulk did when working on the set, you're good to go. Start listening and matching.

Aside from that, the next best option may very well be the mono audio track from the TOS Blu-rays. There have been a few comments made that they are not 100% broadcast accurate, but only largely in reference to sound effects.

A third option would be the fan-made soundtracks, or the surround sound mixes they were extracted from over the last few years. Those, however, would incorporate some mistakes that have supposedly existed since the earliest post-laserdisc TOS releases, including wrong cues and some of the 1970s re-recordings being used in various episodes.

All that said, I would like for this thread first to document any incorrect cues used on either the TOS Blu-ray sets' mono audio (hopefully very few) or the DVD/Blu-ray sets' 5.1 or 7.1 surround audio (there should be several glaring errors there, for those familiar with the material). Second, I'd like this thread to be a jumping off point for those compiling the scores, if at all possible.
