The theme from the original Star Trek television series, which started airing in 1966, was written by the veteran orchestrator and composer Alexander Courage, and the show’s creator, Gene Roddenberry, and is as instantly identifiable as Spock’s pointy ears. The excellent composer Michael Giacchino provides the score here for yet another descendent of the much-loved sci-fi show: the 2009 feature, Star Trek, directed by J.J. Abrams. (The pair had previously collaborated on television and film projects including Alias, Lost, Mission: Impossible III, and Cloverfield.) From the soundtrack’s opening moments, Giacchino shows he’s a welcome addition to the roster of composers who have contributed to Star Trek’s musical legacy. The album begins with a French horn playing the new film’s main theme, moves on to the explosive “Nailin’ the Kelvin,” then settles into the serene, yet dramatic, “Labor of Love.” “Nero Death Experience” (Giacchino loves punning titles) effectively utilizes a large chorus, blasts of brass, and other elements, and “Ending Credits” nicely incorporates both the original TV theme and Giacchino’s musical material.
Trek Is Back And better than ever
this soundtrack is Brilliant the return of classic theme from the first TV series combined with this new Fantastic take on the original Trek Themes also Micheal Giacchino does not use the themes from past trek movies or Voayager DS9 ,Enterprise or The Next Genaration as these are now wiped of the star trek countinuty and only this film and the orginal series remian (Due To The Time Paradox and The Destruction of Vulcan) so Micheal Giacchino does not rerfence somthing that no longer exist in the Trek Timeline
I just saw the movie and may I be the first to say - Oh my god! So amazingly well done and the music makes it all the greater. I highly recommend it to any soundtrack lover.
Worthy Soundtrack Entry in the Franchise
Following Goldsmith's grand and uderappreciated "Nemesis" score was always going to a tall order, let alone "The Motion Picture" and the "The Wrath of Khan" which have aquired cult-status as the perfect Star Trek film scores. Fortunately, Giacchino provides a nuanced and rather epic score, rich in characterisations and action. It manages to combine styles from Goldsmith and Horner while also sounding very much like Alexander Courage's early work on the television show (or what a modern Courage score would sound like if put to a film). The main theme is particularly James Hornerific. There are Giacchino's trademark orchestrations throughout which sometimes throws the listener into an episode of "Lost", "Alias" or "MI:III" but all up very enjoyable. Fans of the original television theme are in for a special treat with the end credits.
