Goldsmith's score for ST:TMP is hard to beat. I listen to it regularly on my MP3 player while at work (along with Vangelis' Blade Runner and Tangerine Dream's score for The Keep).

Giacchino's quickly become one of my favorite film score composers, among other greats like Williams, Goldsmith, Michael Kamen, Herrmann. I completely dug the retro vibe he gave THE INCREDIBLES, and I can't wait to hear how he celebrates and adapts the classic TREK theme, not to mention hear his original compositions for the score.

Michael Giacchino has already shown a flair for bringing a new twist on material from the 60s.

Listen to what he did for Mission: Impossible III.

Really nice work. Respectful of the original series music, but still sounding fresh and new.

If he does this for Star Trek, it'll be really great.

Giacchino's easily one of the best composers alive, and a perfect choice for Star Trek. He's been able to do things completely unique and his own, such as The Incredibles and Ratatouille, but he can do things like Mission: Impossible, where he uses pre-existing themes (and not just the one theme everyone knows and loves, but other little cues that the show used that have been "lost" and forgotten over the years), in new and fresh ways that make it seem like you haven't heard them before.

I really have high hopes for his Star Trek score, and know that those high expectations will be far exceed when I finally hear it in December.
