I think Leonard Rosenman should be the best.

Cliff Eidelmann's score, hands down, was the best of the one-timers. Ominous, epic opening theme (First Contact could've taken some cues from this for its opening theme), evocative passages throughout the movie, and a great end theme.

I was put off by Rosenmann's theme to ST IV, considering it was a rehash of the end titles of Ralph Bakshi's animated "Lord of the Rings". Some of the score was okay, and it fit the movie, but not my cup o' Earl Grey.

Generations' score was too "episode-ish".

I agree that First Contact's Main Titles seem kinda out of place, and yet it is a very beautiful piece of music.

Oh, yes, it is a beautiful piece of music. Best served for end titles though...where the hopefulness of the movie really shone through.

Maybe....but on the other hand, after the generic TV background music sound of the Generations score, anything that had a proper structure to it was welcome!

The overture is what makes that soundtrack the best for me. It's freaking epic!

Yes, only the overture. The rest is not at all memorable.

Yeah, that bit's ok when done over the horse jump scene - but the main title following the bottle was awful.

Agreed.

The overture also was good when set to clips at the 30th Anniversary Special.
