Default Best musical one timer

Of the few guys who only did one Trek movie score, who's the best?

I'm not going to include Michael Giacchino, since I suspect he will compose for the sequel.

You're pitting two TV-esque scores against Eidelman's. I don't even think the other two are in the same league.

Very close run off between Rosenman and Eidelmann but Rosenman gets it.

Rosemans was fantastic.
It's a really really hard choice but I think Rosemans rendition is memorable on several levels.

Rosenman for me as well. That title theme on Voyage Home is beautiful. Probably my favorite piece of music in all of Trek. No messing around with it, it just grabs you and won't let go.

Great theme.

The only themes from TVH that really grabbed me were Checkov's chase through the aircraft carrier and Checkov's escape from the hospital, and neither were very Star Trek-y. As for the main titles, there's really no momentum going there...alternating between enough bells to choke a cathedral and a wishy-washy, Vivaldi string bit.

I'd actually rank the Generations score higher....that entire Troi Crashes the Enterprise sequence was made by the music. I also think Generations has a highly underrated opening credits sequence/score.

The classic Trek motif played when the bottle strikes the Enterprise-B is probably my favourite rendition of that piece.

The whole Generations soundtrack is underrated. A shame, because it really is quite beautiful.

I picked Eidelmans's, but McCarthy's was a VERY close second. McCarthy's music for Generations was EPIC, had absolutely NO hint of sounding like television music whatsoever, and in my book was one of the few good things about Generations.

Eidelmans's is a close second for me too. Rosenman did a brilliant job in TVH, but it's just not quite as good as the other two.
