Star Trek: Music from the Video Games – New Release Information & Track Previews

Last week we brought you news of the new Music From The Star Trek Saga from BSX Records. Hot on the heels of that, we've received word of another very special release from BSX bringing together some of the most celebrated music from the world of Star Trek Gaming. Star Trek: Music from the Video Games features memorable music from the original scores of no less than 13 iconic Star Trek video games.

The bulk of the 29 track collection is handed over to the complete reproduction of the soundtrack from the classic Star Trek Borg game, originally released in 1996. Gaming fans won't be disappointed however, as numerous other titles are represented including Star Trek Online, Birth of the Federation, Star Trek Armada II, Elite Force and Bridge Commander - to name but a few.

  • Mat Rowe

    Are these re-recordings again?

    • Silver83

      Which, in some cases, would be great. Elite Force for example had synthesized music and listening to it as a big orchestrated version would have some appeal to me.

      • Anna Kinn

        I’d say it could be hit or miss on some of them – Elite Force is a good example where this version will most likely sound better, but with other ones like Starfleet Academy I doubt they can match it. BSX’s own recordings are usually pretty low budget, meaning they usually use some real instruments, but most of it is synthesized. Btw, there are samples now up for all tracks on Amazon. I don’t know what’s the deal with Bridge Commander, though. The “Main Theme from TMP” sounds awefully slow, and it seems to be the exact track as it appeared on the “Music From The Star Trek Saga”-release. On there, it was advertised simply as Theme from TMP, and here it’s supposed to be the theme from Bridge Commander. I haven’t played it, so does this theme really appear there in the game in this slowmo-version?

    The cover art is fugly!

    • trekcore

      It may be the case that using Trek imagery wasn’t allowed for this release (and the previous release) due to licensing…

      • Legolars

        I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what’s happened. Which is why these kinds of releases don’t appeal to me.

  • Pigeon

    Any music recorded by Dominik Hauser can be read as “made by some guy with a Yamaha keyboard”, also the entire album is already available here in the UK on Spotify, be sure to check your own localities…

    Pass on it. Awful…just awful…
