Star Trek Series Music Poll

I thought it would be interesting to see which Star Trek series music people like the best. I have a couple of mixed soundtracks, and I tend to be partial towards DS9 and Enterprise. TOS and TNG seemed to be a bit cheezy, except for the irrefutable Orchestra Suite from the Inner Light, and when it comes to Voyager...I am not that familiar with the music. So if you want, post your favorites, dislikes or thoughts...I would love to hear them!

ENT had the best score, at least in the earlier seasons. It kind of became generic Trek as he show progressed.

TOS has by fair the best music. The others might have better opening themes (DS9 and VOY definitely), but TOS's incidental music has never been beat.

Seeing as how The Idiot Berman actually instructed his composers to make unobtrusive "sonic wallpaper," the show's under his purview were handicapped.

That is quite disappointing. I did not realize he did that. Is there a specific article or source you know of referencing this information?

I definately agree with you, but I would also say that TNG's first two years had some pretty good scores also. Listening to the Ron Jones CD collection recently reminded me of that.

Re: Star Trek Series Music Poll

I definitely like the music on TNG the best. I like Enterprise's opening music as well. As for Voyager, it is alright but I find it a bit cheesy. I don't care for the TOS music much and I've never watched DS9.

It was well documented during TNG; I'm sure it will come up in a google search. I believe the phrase "sonic wallpaper" was actually how Berman described it.

TOS had some great music, and anything on TNG from Ron Jones is gold.

So far only the TOS backers have posted YouTube clips to back their viewpoint - where's the rest?
