I shall save my vote until I have checked all of the movies. It may take a few days.

I still say it was Wrath of Khan, it energizes me, everytime I play Legacy I think of that song, it's soorta my theme song.

Oh, the music for Generations is fine... as long as you're trying to cure insomnia. LOL

If you dig that score, you should definitely check out Holst.
My vote is for VI. If you watch the special features you would learn that Cliff Eidelman even included some Klingon language vocalization in the score. Brilliant!

I have never big fan Goldsmith's TMP(TNG) main theme- too Sousa/militaristic for my taste. But still I vote for the TMP score because of 'Ilya's Theme', a favorite for me of any type of music. And I enjoy almost every type of music. That beautiful theme sets me 'aswoonin'. Goldsmith was a genius.

Default TMP Has the edge.

I listened to all of the movie scores. I must say that Star Trek TMP won out. All were good, but they all seemed to be based, at least in part, on the original Movie Score. TMP being first, gives it a leg up on all of those to follow.

I posted this blurb elsewhere, but thought I'd bring it up here to as an adjunct topic:

While reviewing CLOVERFIELD on DVD, I got to listen to Michael Giacchino's "Roar" end credits overture in more detail and his ear and talent for recapturing 'period' film scores continues to impress me.

If he does as well in the same task scoring TREK, his work could end up being among the best scores in the franchise. I'm looking forward to hearing his work for the film.
