    Default Star Trek movies

    Since the other thread is about Star Wars, I thought about another movie.
    Who has a favorite soundtrack to the Star Trek. In my opinion Star Wars
    is just a want to be Star trek. From the first TV show to the last movie.
    I want your opinion.

    Far and away my favorite Star Trek film score is Jerry Goldsmith's for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Goldsmith is one of the finest film composers of the latter part of the last century, and this is one of his finest scores. Even though he scored some of the others, and did so quite well, I don't think he ever reached the level he did here. In fact I would count this as one of the best of all film scores, up there with some of Herrmann's best work.

    Star Trek TMP is probably the most cerebral (whatever THAT means) of the series but I much perfer the swashbuckling Star Trek V, which was right at the cusp where Goldsmith started writing simpler music for progressively louder movies.

    I'll have to agree with LvB; that on the basis of the music alone, Star Trek: The Motion Picture has the strongest score. However, because I so strongly associate the music with the movie, I still enjoy the score to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan by James Horner the most. Who can listen to "Enterprise Clears Moorings" or "The Mutara Nebula" without vividly recalling these scenes?
