It might be on iTunes, or Amazon MP3.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

It involves a 14 foot long instrument, some amplifiers, and rotating artillary shell casings and magnets.

It also makes some whale-song like sounds, like for instance in "The Force Field", and was also used in Star Trek II and Star Trek III, but dialed back a lot.

I'm still waiting for some dork to complain that the name "That New Car Smell" DESTROYS CANON because there are NO NEW CARS IN THE REEEEEEAAAAL STAR TREK...

I've only heard the 30 second clip, but New Car Smell is my current favorite on the track list. The significance behind it make it a really moving emotional piece.

Did anyone notice the quote from "Launch Day-December 1968" by David Kneupper? The quote comes at 2:40 in "That New Car Smell", and again at 3:26. Kneupper's score is used at the Kennedy Space Center for the Apollo mission tour. I thought it was clever to use the music from the Apollo launch for Enterprise's departure from space dock.
