I'll admit, I'm a soundtrack nut and when it comes to Star Trek, I just cannot get enough. However, when a film's score is released either through either CDs or downloads, what's presented is never quite as definitive as a movie per say. It's just hard to get a concrete view on how the movies score should be presented. Here's a list I've compiled to express my point. Star Trek: The Motion Picture is one of the most complete soundtracks to any Star Trek film, but it still lacks some cues like the attack on Epsilon 9, Captain's log, Warp Speed, encountering the cloud, V'Ger attacks Earth and entering the orifice ect. Star Trek II: Lost of missing pieces. It goes from Kirk's retaliation against Khan in their first encounter to the attack in the Mutara Nebula which also has some defining cues missing. The V'Ger cave piece is gone as is searching Regula One, "KHAAAAAN!", and Spock's death. Another little thing that stinks is that they included Spock's "Space, the final frontier" narration from the ending onto the actual soundtrack! Grrr. I guess this was just one of the soundtracks that more or less presents the music in it's own story telling fashion and not as it did from the movie. Star Trek III: Oh, lots and lots missing. In fact, there's pretty much only six tracks of music from the movie an one of this is a very different version that was used in the film itself (Track #2 Klingons). A lot of good stuff like information exchange with Kruge, finding Bones in spock's quarters, Klingons plotting about Genesis, Sunset scene, Pon Far, Self-Destruct of the Enterprise, Destruction of Genesis. And to make matters more awkward, there's an odd remix at the end of the CD that looks like it was thrown in for filler purposes. Star Trek IV: Weird bag here. While Star Trek IV is unique in it's style, it's shown here outright. While the music is in the movie, you have to sit through about more than half the tracks before it gets to the portions that were used. Not a bad thing, just awkward. And the ballad of the while is just strange. Star Trek V: Ah, yes. One of the rare occasions where the soundtrack is excellent but not the movie (Another for me being "Hook"). While the music here is presented quite nicely, the placement of the tracks is way off! It will go to the opening title to the god planet. Star Trek VI: Very nice collection here. What's missing is mostly tiny bits of cues and there are some tracks that dissolve into each other (Which I loath), but at least the final battle is presented in it's entirety (If a bit rushed when the Klingon ship is finally taken down). Star Trek Generations: Not much to say other than I really miss the Enterprise D approaching the space laboratory after the holodeck scene. That was such a fantastic cue for the Enterprise entering the scene. Another nice piece that's gone is the stellar cartography scene which has some nice tense moments (Can be heard on the Bonus Disc main menu with a little SFX). Star Trek First Contact: Nice and 'almost' complete. Wiki entries actually list bootleg copies to being more complete and even makes note that none of the profits go to Jerry Goldsmith. Star Trek Insurrection: Pretty much the same with First Contact, some missing but most of it is all here. Star Trek Nemesis: Lots of music here sounds like extended versions of the music heard in the movies while some are missing altogether. Stuff that's missing includes when the Enterprise E enters the screen for the first time, finding B4's source signal, the first half of the battle in the nebula and the wonderful homage to TMP with the Enterprise E in drydock. For not liking the movie all that much, I thought the space battle music was great, but it was a shame it wasn't all included. Star Trek 09. Hmm... I wonder.... So I ask you, how do you think Star Trek's soundtracks should be handled? Should we get the whole nine yards with the complete recordings (Lord of the Rings CR, ALIEN intrada release, SUPERMAN Blue Box by FSM), a soundtrack release that has music sounding nothing like it does in the film (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), or a soundtrack that's released before the films opening but feels a bit rushed (Star Wars prequels, Lord of the Rings standard). How would you like to hear Star Trek music?
