Re: Favorite Trek Soundtracks...

TMP set a new standard for movie soundtracks when it premiered. I recall that even the critics and fans who panned the film positively gushed over the score.

TFF was a surprisingly good score. I use it for background and RPG music with regularity.

First Contact's score was amazing. I turned to my wife in the theater as the opening credits faded into Picard's dream and told her, "Even if the rest of the film is dreadful, I've had my money's worth!"

TWOK and TSFS were excellent for their time. Unfortunately Horner continued to write for film and now all I can think is, "Oh, look! The starship Titanic just hit the giant space iceberg!"

09 and STID are good scores with a couple of great tracks each, but somehow don't quite sing when listened to without the films.

Insurrection and Nemesis are both far better than the films they accompany.

TVH... Lord, but I hate every aspect of that film. This is the only Trek soundtrack that I no longer own seperately. I cringe at it's 80s bubblegum shallowness.

My favorite piece of Trek music, however, is the intro to DS9. It's the ringtone on my phone!

Re: Favorite Trek Soundtracks...

It's a matter of age with Horner. When TWOK came out, my friends were bitching about how it all sounded like THE WOLFEN and BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS ... and they were right! I can't think of anyone else who has been so shamelessly derivative and yet so overwhelmingly successful.

For me, it has always been TMP, TFF, select pieces of TWOK like SNEAK ATTACK frenzied portions and, TV-wise, THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE and THE EMPATH (also the good exciting stuff on TIN MAN.)

I can't distinguish the soundtracks all that well, but I do know I absolutely LOVE Goldsmith's "Klingon Imperial Theme".

Michael Giacchino probably has given us the best trek sound track of all time.
I dunno. It seemed to me he just wrote one theme and repeated it ad nauseum. Very repetitive.

It does repeat, but I like it.

I remember this kid (probably in middle school at the time) sitting in the back of me whistling the theme song during the closing credits of the 2009 film. It was awesome.
