Generations Expanded Soundtrack!

The time has finally arrived. GNP has officially announced the Expanded Edition Soundtrack to Star Trek: Generations!

Star Trek: Generations Expanded Collector's Edition 2CD

GNP Crescendo Records continues its commitment to Star TrekTM fans with the first-ever release of Dennis McCarthy/’s complete score for Star Trek Generations (1994). This 2 CD collector/’s edition features the complete film score on disc one (including music for one scene deleted from the finished film), and a remastered version of the 1994 GNP soundtrack album (and its innovative sound effects library) on disc two.

Star Trek Generations was the first feature film starring the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation, a /“passing the baton/” story in which Star Trek: The Original Series character James T. Kirk (William Shatner) teams up with Star Trek: The Next Generation Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) via a mysterious space/time phenomenon called the Nexus to battle an obsessed alien scientist, Dr. Soran (Malcolm McDowell).

Generations/’ atypical (for Star Trek) mood of melancholy, contemplation and—ultimately—uplift was captured by the composer who has scored more hours of the modern-day Star Trek television series than any other, Dennis McCarthy. Relishing the opportunity to work with a large orchestra and a more cinematic vocabulary, McCarthy used a broader, more melodic palette befitting the big-screen presentation.

From its innovatively gentle main title music to its traditionally heroic themes, from its haunting choir-infused music for the Nexus to its strategically spotted quotes of Alexander Courage/’s Star Trek fanfare, McCarthy’s score both honors tradition and brings a fresh new voice to the Star Trek universe.

GNP Crescendo released the original soundtrack album to Star Trek Generations in 1994, featuring 45 minutes of score highlights. This expanded release includes not only the full score (nearly 76 minutes) and remastered album, but also 3 bonus tracks—including the motion picture dialogue “Lifeforms” performed and somewhat improvised by Brent Spiner (as Data).

The accompanying 16-page booklet includes informative notes by Jeff Bond and Lukas Kendall and is lavishly illustrated with film stills. A track-by-track commentary for both discs by John Takis is available online at gnpcrescendo.com/generations. STAR TREK GENERATIONS—2 CD Collector’s Edition (GNPD 8080) is a limited edition of 10,000 units, and is available solely as a physical CD from GNP Crescendo Records, www.gnpcrescendo.com.

Such a great, underrated score! I am hoping this one gets a reevaluation like Star Trek III's score did. Really good stuff, I've wanted the full presentation since the film came out.

Buying it.

Hmm... I wonder if there will be a (legal) way to get just the first disc. The second doesn't have anything I feel I need, and I'm spending so much on the TOS box set that it would make it difficult to splurge on this as well.

Itunes or Amazon MP3?

Re: Generations Expanded Soundtrack!

I just listened to the soundtrack and it really is McCarthy's best work, terribly underrated. The online liner notes for the new release just prove how thematic it actually is. Can't wait to hear some of those unreleased cues!

That would be nice, but I haven't noticed the other expanded albums getting digital releases so far (though the giant Ron Jones box set did).

Re: Generations Expanded Soundtrack!

With few exceptions, the labels putting out these complete scores on CD don't have the digital rights.

Also, for the GNP Crescendo expansions (Generations and First Contact), they are limited to 10,000 copies to save money on union reuse fees (at 10,000 units or lower, the AFM allows for a much cheaper, "archival" rate, making some of these titles financially feasible for the niche market who collects them).

I'm guessing the Trek II thru VI releases may be limited to 10,000 copies, but it isn't stated openly (perhaps studio wishes).

Either that, or the labels (FSM/Retrograde and Intrada) are hoping to keep the titles in print for a long enough time to make their money back.

Either way, unless Paramount wants to release the scores for digital download, it is unlikely we'll see them released that way.

The Ron Jones set eventually made its way to digital download, didn't it?

I'd recommend selling the old CD on the secondary market, but a perusal of Amazon reveals that good copies are going for less than fifty cents.

That was an exception to the general rule, Harvey.

Lukas Kendall shelled out for the download rights for the Ron Jones Project as well as the album rights.
