1. Which season's music says "Star Trek" to you more than the rest--or do they equally represent that feeling/thought?
That's a tough question. I can tell you what scores I prefer, but I can't sat if one season's music sounds more "Star Trek" than the others.
2. Do you think TOS' music is the greatest ever composed for the ST franchise?
Among the best at any rate. Goldsmith and Horner did grand things, but Sol Kaplan brought movie music to the TV. I think someone else said that too.
3. Among the best--or the best score ever composed in TV history?
That's an impossible question to answer, since there has been so much great music in TV. I'll say it's my favorite, about even with the John Williams Lost In Space music. Of its era, it's easily in the top one or two. The fullness of the sound belies the number of musicians. These guys all sound great, among their best sounding work. Compare the same composers' scores to the Man from UNCLE stuff, where the ensembles were much smaller - and it showed. The music was thin and sounded like a "couple of guys in a garage." With Trek, it's like night and day.
