As premieres of Star Trek Into Darkness continues to ripple across the globe, well known Star Trek soundtrack label Varese Sarabande have announced their plans to release Michael Giacchino’s score to the movie later this month. Star Trek Into Darkness – The Soundtrack is officially released on May 28, 2013.

Varese Sarabande have released the following description of the soundtrack

Original score to the 2013 motion picture composed by Michael Giacchino, an Academy Award winner for his score for Up. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

    Awesome artwork! When does it come out via iTunes?

  • hypnotoad72

    Nice CGI.
    Would like to see TREK stay away from Earth more often… calling it “23rd century” but filling it with early-21st century trappings is kinda, well, stupid…

    • archer9234

      Stay away? Except for Star Trek 4. The movies don’t use Earth much. One of the few good things the JJ movies does, is show Earth more.

      • The Guy Over Here

        Earth has action on it, is used as a plot device, and/or appears in every movie save for Insurrection (if my memory serves). They may end up “Boldly Going” in most parts of the movies, but they seem to always be near “home”.

        • archer9234

          So you count as it just mentioned/appearing VS actually being used. Okay. But JJ used Earth the most out all the ST films, Minus 4.

    Where’s “Ode to Harrison”? Is this CD an incomplete score?

    • Very much incomplete, I believe there is something like 100 minutes of score. I suspect like last time there will be an expanded version in the future (at least fingers crossed)

  • Shatoupee

    Incomplete scores suck. More milking of the Trek fans, because after all, a Trekker’s born every minute!

    Already got the soundtrack yesterday from iTunes!
