The original "Star Trek" TV show ran just three seasons, from 1966 until 1969. During the next ten years the show gained fans while in syndication, and in 1979, this television phenomenon decided to boldly go where it hadn't gone before: the silver screen. "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" was the first of many films to enlarge on the characters and stories, and to increase the budget for special effects and music.
Scores from the original series have a charm of their own, but the "Star Trek" film scores allowed a big orchestral sound to enter the Trek universe. David Garland presents music from the first six "Star Trek" movies, plus the 2009 cinematic re-launch of the franchise, including scores by Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Leonard Rosenman, Cliff Eidelman and Michael Giacchino.
