Patton only has 25 minutes of music in it, but the music that's there is great.
The echoing trumpets (triplets in parallel fifths), the first music heard in Patton, which foreshadow the triplets in the melody itself when it gets going - damn, Goldsmith was brilliant - are recalled at a key moment in Horner's TWoK score: just as Khan finishes saying "On Earth, two hundred years ago..." there's a similar echoing pattern in fifths. So Horner is momentarily recalling Patton at the exact moment when Khan recollects his own past glories as a conqueror: "On Earth, two hundred years ago...I was a prince. With power over millions."
