It apparently plays the whole soundtrack, not only the first seconds...?!

For what it's worth a lot of these are in the "Art of" book that came out in November though you get a lot nicer pics here on that site. They didn't include my favorite bridge concept from the book though, that I actually preferred to the bridge that we got (actually the concept of the final bridge was better than the final product.)

Quote:
The Broadcast Film Critics Association is the largest film critics organization in the United States and Canada, representing 199 television, radio and online critics. Our collective membership is the primary source of information for today's entertainment consumers. The very first opinion a moviegoer hears about new releases at the multiplex or the art house usually comes from one of our members.
Founded in 1995, the BFCA presents its Critics' Choice Awards each year to honor the finest achievements in filmmaking. A portion of the proceeds from the awards presentation ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel is donated to the Starlight Children's Fund.
The BFCA also selects a Film of the Month and officially recommends other worthy films throughout the course of the year. As an additional service to moviegoers, each film is given a Critics' Choice Rating (on a 1-10 scale, 10 being the highest), based on the cumulative grades each film receives in the monthly balloting. More information on these ratings is available in the New Movies area . The BFCA is led by its President and Board of Directors. Joey Berlin is currently serving as President. The Board of Directors is John De Simio, Jim Ferguson, Mark Ramsey and Sara Voorhees.
Our standards: All film reviews represent the unique and honest opinion of the authoring member. Any attempt to influence a review beyond providing information is a violation of BFCA standards. `Quotes' may only be provided from reviews that have been, will be or are intended to be broadcast or printed, and cannot be altered in any way without the expressed permission of the reviewer.

Did anyone look at the video "Sound for Film" on this site? Love it, love it! Also, in watching the film for the umpteenth time, anyone notice that when the ship goes to warp, the impulse engines fade down, and when the ship drops out of warp, the impulse engines light fire back up? Oh, that type of thing really rings my bell! One of the small annoyances for me in previous Trek TV shows and films is that the impluse engines were ALWAYS ON, even at warp. That didn't make sense to me. Thanks to the production crew that had some Tech-minded Trekkers on hand when creating those visual effects!

I didn't like the sounds. Not at all. The shuttles sound like someone who took all the drugs in the world and plays the flute...
The Enterprise sounds like a highway when a car passes by.

NCC, I have to disagree. The sounds were organic sounding, like something real and grounded. Very much in tune with TOS.

Whenever I hear the shuttles, I think of this old commercial...

The whoosh of the Big E streaking by got two big thumbs up from me. The shuttlecraft sound had to grow on me, however. At first, it sounded like George Jetson's mobile. Now, I can live with it.
