I really like "Ba'Ku Village" from Insurrection. Just one of my favorites.

My single, top favorite track would have to be "Battle in the Mutara Nebula" from TWOK. But I have a lot of favorites.

Agreed. The harp notes and orchestral strings were just sweeping and melodic, very well done on Jerry Goldsmith's part. The man was an amazing talent.

Goldsmith, in my factual opinion, is one of the few (perhaps the only) composer to generally outmatch even John Williams. He not have Williams's power, but unlike Williams, he doesn't repeat each main theme six times with minimal variation. Well, in STAR TREK V, MAYbe.
True, but I can't imagine Goldsmith ever composing anything like Williams' scores for Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Catch Me If You Can.

I don't know. Goldsmith had quite a range. Compare his score for Planet of the Apes to his score for TMP. Totally different approaches, styles, etc. And he excelled at both.

However, that's not to say that I think he's better than John Williams. I would be hard pressed to say I think one or the other is better. I can't imagine Goldsmith improving upon Williams' Superman score, for example. But neither can I imagine Williams improving on Goldsmith's score for TMP.

^I always think of that as the Klingon Calvary music. I loved hearing it in subsequent movies too though I can't remember how many it was used in.

IIRC, Jerry Goldsmith liked to drop that in whenever a scene heavily involved Klingons. You can hear it in ST:FC, for example, when Worf arrives on the bridge of the Enterprise-E after being rescued from the Defiant.

You can get a sort of taste of what he'd have done by listening to his score for Supergirl, although that theme was a little girly for the Man Of Steel....

Pretty much anything into which Horner would incorporate the Spock theme most associated with his death, throughout ST:2 & 3

Completely agree, ive listened to that track so many times now, it's insane. That and Genesis Countdown are probably my 2 favorites.

Yes! They make up a one-two punch of suspense and action that's just about as good as film music gets.

For me, those are the best two things to come out of the JJverse.

Lastly, I'd like to mention James Horner's weaving of the TOS theme into his work. I think he melded the TOS theme with his own cues perhaps better than anyone else. In particular, I always love the first minute or so of the end titles cue from TSFS where he not only quotes the TOS fanfare, but actually the TOS theme itself before going in to his own theme. Very well done.
We all know that Horner is a mashup artist who appropriates music in his scores, not always Trek, and more often than not his own past work. This is a point of criticism to music snobs but in TSFS it worked beautifully, both the bits from TOS, as well as the pieces from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXAH5fri_a0

It's not a 1:1 copy, in fact I prefer Horner's straighter, sweeter harmony. Horner's rhythmic approach and dynamics also makes it sound more like a gasp or inhale followed by a scream or cry whereas Prokofiev is more staccato.
