While the next big La-La Land Star Trek soundtrack collection is due in just a few weeks – their first Star Trek: Voyager set – we have some more updates to report on future score collections from the music label!
Back in November, soundtrack producer Lukas Kendall revealed that this month’s set is actually just one of two planned Voyager collections, and that a follow-up to 2013’s Deep Space Nine soundtrack set was on the way as well.
Now, La-La Land’s MV Gerhard has revealed their tentative release schedule for both of these sequel sets – thanks to comments posted at the FilmScoreMonthly.com message boards, we can look forward to Deep Space Nine: Volume 2 later this year, with a continuation of the upcoming Voyager discs next year (that will contain tracks for “Endgame,” the series finale).
[Our] plan over the next 18 months for Trek is as follows:
DS9 Volume 2 – 3rd qtr 2017
Voyager Volume 2 – 1st qtr 2018
[Score for ‘Voyager’ finale’] Endgame will be on Vol 2. Had to save something.
In addition, an in-the-works “leftovers” set has been projected for release sometime in 2018, collecting one more round of Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise score into what seems to be La-La Land’s final planned Trek soundtrack set. (Hopefully Enterprise fan-favorite “Azati Prime” might finally be included here!)
Unknown Trek collection featuring:
Disc 1 – TNG – leftovers
Disc 2 – DS9 – leftovers
Disc 3 – Voyager – leftovers
Disc 4 – Enterprise – leftovers
Probably by Summer 2018 we will be saying our final goodbye to Trek. I think roughly after 9 CDs from each series we will have covered just about all the amazing music from this incredible universe.
Lastly, as for looking ahead to Star Trek: Discovery, Gerhard hasn’t counted out that show’s future with the label, but is still working to gain the rights to the series’ score:
Well, I’d be lyin if I said we aren’t trying to get it. Fingers crossed!
As soon as more information becomes available on these future Star Trek score collections, we’ll bring it to you here!
