Indeed. And even then, thought I believe the directives to tone the music down began during TNG's third season. Ironically, one of the show's fan favorite musical cues, the music from the "inform Starfleet we have engaged the Borg" scene in TBOBW only came about reportedly because the composer knew it was his last episode making him free from consequence. I find Voyager had catchy music in its action scenes in its later seasons. Unfortunately, they overused it making it become annoying while binge watching. Tenet did a piss-poor job recording its dialogue anyway, making it difficult to understand what the characters are saying in scenes where there is no music.
