This thread is posted here in the 'General' section because we're covering all of the films, including the Abramsverse. No matter what you (or I) may think of a certain film, sometimes the soundtrack just stands above the material (e.g. "Tron Legacy"). Which is your favorite Trek soundtrack, despite what you may think of the film it accompanies? Here is my list: *TMP - That cosmic, sci-fi theme by Jerry Goldsmith is eerie and tells its own story of a mysterious journey into an alien world. I, of course, love the opening theme....and 'that sound' called the Blaster Beam (created by Trek alumni Craig Huxley) used throughout the soundtrack at various points. *TWOK/TSFS - I was a big James Horner fan, and the soundtracks he did for these two movies started my fandom. However, he did have some missteps (e.g. "Willow"..."The Amazing Spider-Man" and some others). Some non-Trek soundtracks by Horner are amazing such as "Legends of the Fall" (never seen the film, but I love the soundtrack)..."Glory"...'Aliens Attack/Ripley's Rescue' from "Aliens," and the second "Titanic" soundtrack. *TFF - Another Jerry Goldsmith entry. I haven't listened to the entire soundtrack, but I do like the opening theme - originally created for TMP - followed by the track called 'The Mountain.' *TUC - I haven't listened to the entire theme, but I do love the opening by Cliff Eidelman, who also did the theme for "Meteor Man." *FC - I used to own the CD to this soundtrack. Jerry Goldsmith uses the Klingon theme again for this soundtrack, and has an emotional opening theme that blew me away when I first heard it. *Nemesis - Another soundtrack I used to own years back. One track I do like is "Remus." Another is one I can't remember the title to - it is an 'action scene' theme close to the end theme on the soundtrack. *ST - I love Michael Giacchino's soundtrack. Majority of the music is frantic (signifying the situations) as well as sense of youth and wonder. I tried to jog to 'Enterprising Young Men'....believing I was running through the corridors of a ship....but it only works for around 2 mins until it switches over to another genre of music; basically throwing me off. *STID - I haven't heard the entire soundtrack, but I love the 'sort of' revamped theme by Giacchino. Aside from the films, there are some Alexander Courage tracks I want to give a listen to. I borrowed a CD of music from TOS years back - yes, everything was years back before time was set for certain things - and I'd found the music to be pretty timeless.
