Talking Song!

I know it sounds a little silly lol. Who thinks that XI should have a music track to accompany it written and performed by a popular artist (eg. nickelback rofl!). Maybe it could even make number 1 in the charts!

Star trek should stay on the classical way. (although Enterprise sounded very good)
A song in the middle of the movie, yes, a song at the beginning, no.

Yes, it was optimistic with the Star Trek typical "frontier-spirit" in it.
For some episodes this was the only good thing of the whole 40 min.

I liked the enterprise theme, it gets old after a while, but overall its a good song.

I definitely dont think trek should have a pop-star soundtrack though

Wow... Rock and Pop songs would not fit Star Trek at all.

Can that idea and throw it away.

I could not agree more with the idea of integrating a music track. I've wanted to see that for a while now -- in fact, I was rather annoyed by all of the negative things that were said about the theme from Enterprise. Yes, it was a Rod Stewart song, but those who critisized it completely missed the mark by forgetting to notice how the lyrics reflected Star Trek's vision. Shame, shame! Never the less, a great idea.
