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.
