It is interesting to see that McCarthy did steal from himself, he uses almost the exact same cue from "The Die is Cast" in the Generations soundtrack.
Other way around. Generations came first.

I once saw a quote from McCarthy saying that he reused the Generations cues to see if anyone was paying attention. Obviously a lot of us were. (Or maybe he meant he wanted to see if Berman was paying attention? Berman -- and Lauritson, I guess -- discouraged the composers from reusing themes and motifs, and maybe he was testing to see if they would even notice if he did. That's just speculation, though.)
Well I was listening! Thanks Chris
