Ah, now I see the logic of your argument, thanks.

I'm split on this. I always favoured James Horner's scores, however I thought Goldsmith's title theme for First Contact was something special and I alsways had as soft spot for Cliff Eidelman's efforts for VI.

One of the best parts of First Contact though was Steppenwolf! I went crazy when I heard that. I was like Steppenwolf in a Trek Movie you DON'T get any better than that!

Awww, no love for Insurrection? I really liked that one, though it's not my favourite. There was something about the way he orchestrated the TMP March that makes it one of my fave versions. And it had the evil Son'a "strafing orphans" music, my third favourite bad guy music (the others are Klingons and Khan).

It is hard to choose. First Contact was pretty original. It had some dark themes as well as really beautiful ones. Nemesis had surprisingly different and varied themes.
Still, the James Horner stuff blew me away like almost no other soundtracks have (Danny Elfman's stuff comes close). I voted for ST III instead of II. I know the parts in III are often variations on the themes created in II but I feel that the most exciting track in all of Trek is 'Stealing the Enterprise'.

Horner's score for Star Trek II is my favorite, with Eidelman's Star Trek VI as a close second...

I voted for STII, but First Contact & TMP picture were very close 2nd & 3rds.
