Music From The Star Trek Saga – New Release Information & Track Previews

BSX Records have released a brand new collection of freshly recorded and arranged Star Trek music in an album aptly titled Music From The Star Trek Saga. The 18-track collection brings together music from every generation of Star Trek, covering all TV series, a selection of the movies and - of interest to many fans - the Animated Series.

The majority of the music has been newly produced and arranged by Dominik Hauser and features an array of talented performers including Original Series composer Gerald Fried who contributes a memorable medley of classic TOS music.

The inclusion of the Animated Series theme is bound to please a multitude of fans who have been hoping to get the music from the short lived TOS spinoff for a long time. As we've previously covered in interviews, the original music is thought to be lost but thankfully that hasn't stopped BSX and Hauser producing a brand new recording of the catchy theme.

    PLEASE keep looking for TAS’ music. It’s a big hole in ST’s music.

    • trekcore

      Yes!! While all the guys in the know seem to be quietly certain it’s lost, I do hope it turns up some day to earn a nice release!

      • Allen Williams

        In 2006 they re-recorded TOS’s theme to make the HD-DVD (and eventually blu-ray) release have the best sound possible. Why can’t they do that with TAS?

          They did, for this – they re-recorded the TAS theme.

    “The majority of the music has been newly produced …” :-(

    • Ronny

      Exactly. Which is why I usually don’t buy those. I fell into the trap of Star Trek and other TV shows CDs that advertise the track list, but then in small print basically tell you that it’s not the original music. A no-buy for me.

    • Mat Rowe

      Indeed. Re-recordings are very rarely as good (and even rarer, better) than the originals. They are what we heard in the show and they are how we want to hear them.

  • Dan Martin

    Nice version of the Inner Light theme. Worth my 99 cents.

    • trekcore

      The Inner Light version is really pretty, what do you think to the full thing Dan?

  • DangerousDac

    I get the copyright issues surrounding artwork and the like, but isn’t that a ship from Babylon 5 on the cover there?

    • trekcore

      That’s what I’m lead to believe – or at least very similar in style!
