2020: Forward Motion

Jerry Goldsmith’s theme for Star Trek: The Motion Picture was intended to be the theme for Star Trek’s new voyages on the big screen…except that it was replaced in the next movie…and then drafted back into service for a new Star Trek on the small screen in the late ’80s. But did it get much play aside from The Next Generation’s opening theme music? As it turns out…yes, yes it did. Selections this time around:

  • Star Trek: The Next Generation (Ron Jones)
  • Star Trek: Picard (Jeff Russo)
  • Star Trek: The Motion Picture (early session drafts by Jerry Goldsmith)
