Actually I am pretty stoked. I am a fan of his work and I loved how he slipped a bunch of TOS sound FX into Star Wars!!

How many "TOS" sound effects are actually original? I have seen many 50s films with sounds effects that trek borrowed.

Ben Burtt's doing the sound FX? FanTAStic!
Well, we know the sound effects will be phenomenal!

Burtt does some very good work, so having him onboard is another great plus for Trek XI.

Don't forget to listen for the Wilhelm scream! You KNOW it's gonna show up somewhere if Ben Burtt's at the mixing board.

^^ Ben Burtt has indicated that he may stop using the "Wilhelm Scream" because it has become too much of a cliche rather than the 'tribute to sound history' that was originally intended...i.e., the "in-joke" has been outted.

Let's hope he relents and decides to use it. I'll be listening for it.

Ben Burtt's good people but I hope he doesn't throw a Wilhelm into Star Trek. It invariably takes me out of the scene when I hear one. It's a reminder (often during a cool scene) that it's all fake.

I do recall hearing some Star Trek sound effects in Star Wars, but I'm not quite up on this "Wilhelm scream".

The video in the second link makes apparent long before you reach the end how over-used an effect it's become. I think retiring it from the nerd checklist (at least for a few years) could only be a good thing.

I agree...

Really? Name a couple, then, please.

I ask because, having read vast amounts of stuff on Trek's production over the past 43 years, I've read a number of articles about how various sound effects for the show were created, and created specifically for the show.
(Photon torpedo launching, for instance, was created by tapping a hammer against a guy-wire for a radio transmission tower, for instance.)

So, if there's some information about re-used sound effects you have personal knowledge of which I've missed over the years, please, share it... I'd love to hear about it.

*********

On-topic... I think Ben Burtt is going to be shown to have done a great job. I think he's probably one of the few people on the film who really, REALLY love the original series and will have done his best to respect the source material. We've already heard that he's replicated (not "reused" but actually re-created) the classic red-alert siren, for instance.

If this film, in any way, "feels" like Star Trek, I think he's going to be central to that.
