...one of the best scored Star Trek films in it's history, musically it has produced some of the most memorable motifs.
I'd put the score in the top three in the original series of films. (Cliff Eidelman's Star Trek VI
I put at the top; his score was so
good his career never recovered. Then either Goldsmith's Star Trek: The Motion Picture
score or Horner's Star Trek II
score.) What makes Dennis McCarthy's score for Generations
stand out is that after six years of being told to write "sonic wallpaper" by Rick Berman, he finally got to write a score
, and it's like every idea he had locked away finally bubbled to the surface. It's certainly an effective score, and his main theme feels like Star Trek
while going in its own direction.
