Star Trek First Contact theme

How would you describe the overall tone of the theme? If you can describe the theme in one or two words what would it be?

"Tuneless"

ETA: Sorry, I know you said "First Contact" but my brain interpreted that to mean "Generations".

Two words for First Contact: "Quite Nice"

"Much needed".

I really liked that it was calm and contrasted with the high action of the film itself. The score for the whole film was awesome! (So awesome they recycled parts of it for Insurrection...)

I don't hate Goldsmith's main theme for First Contact at all. I think it's a very good piece of work. Quite romantic, really.

I'm not sure it fits the film.

Re: Star Trek First Contact theme

I saw the film in the theatre in '96 with a non-fan. One of the things she noted most was how the tone of the opening music surprised her and set the tone of the film. She was expecting a Star-Warsy march and was instead greeted with a quietly dramatic selection that bespoke of a more grown-up film. I still feel the same way. having seen all the previous films, I was very surprised when that opening music hit. I remember thinking "wow- this is pretty terrific for Star Trek". I had been anticipating Maestro Goldsmith's return to the series and he gave us something new and mature.

Nice sum up.
