Just out of curiosity, did anyone else receive a set with bad discs? Mine had 3 discs that made my Cambridge player vibrate loudly. I've never encountered this before. Did the same on my OPPO.

I had a similar problem with Shane. It won't play in my PCs TSST drive, though it works fine in my Oppo and my Mac's SuperDrive.

Here's my take on artworks.. For some reason they are not displayed here, so here's the direct link:

Very stylish. An unexpected call to the abstract.


New artwork was just posted in the Star Trek: The Ron Jones Project thread and I'm always excited to have alternate covers for iTunes. This prompted me to revisit some of the older posts in this thread to see if I had grabbed all of the alternate artwork that others were so kind to share. Any chance that you could post a link to each of your individual covers? They're really nice. Also, did anyone else throw together some new covers? I'm always interested to see what's out there.

I recently discovered 89-year old Trek director Ralph Senensky maintains a website, where he discusses his work on classic 60s television. He doesn't mention much about Star Trek music, but the experiences he relates having worked on shows such as Trek, Dr. Kildare and The Fugitive are wonderful.

http://www.senensky.com/

His thoughts on "Return to Tomorrow" are especially interesting.

I have a question regarding a cue that I cannot seem to locate on the discs. It was originally heard during Spock’s Brain and thereafter for almost all episodes (in production order) of season three, apart from, as far as I recall, Is There In Truth No Beauty? and The Empath. The piece I am referring to is first played in the sickbay scene in Spock’s Brain:

MCCOY: No. That incredible Vulcan physique hung on until the life-support cycle took over. His body lives. The autonomic functions continue. But there is no mind.

KIRK: That girl.

[Start the cue]

SCOTT: Aye.

MCCOY: What girl?

KIRK: From that ship. She took it. [Cue fades] I don't know why, or where, but she must have taken it. Bones, how long can you keep him functioning?

A slightly different version is played moments before (Season 3, Disc 2, Track 17, 42 secs in), and then this particular one is heard a few moments later, but does not appear to be on the disc. From what it sounds like, it should be on Track 18, but is missing; it seems like it should be "No Mind" (which is what McCoy says that starts the cue off in the episode). From what it sounds like, Track 18 appears to only have two segments “Tense Moment/Tracking The Alien” with the “No Mind” cue missing.

Two other episodes from season three that feature the cue in question, include Requiem for Methuselah:

Roughly 15 minutes or so into the episode:

McCoy follows the M5 Robot into Flint's laboratory with the Ryetlayn. The robot enters the screened-off area. McCoy looks on, then moves over to several bottles of coloured liquid. [Cue starts.] He picks one up and looks at it. We move into Rayna playing pool. As she prepares to play, you'll hear the cue naturally fade and end.

29 minutes into the episode:

SPOCK (on monitor): Most interesting. Our host appears to wish us to linger, yet he is apprehensive. [Start Cue] It is logical to assume that we are being monitored and that he is aware of our every move.

(Flint turns off the monitor)

RAYNA: You sent the [Cue ends] robot to kill him.

And from "Plato's Stepchildren"

28 minutes into the episode:

SPOCK: Then you must release it, gentlemen, as I must master mine. I might have seriously injured you, Captain, even killed you. They have evoked such great hatred in me, I cannot allow it to go further. I must master it. I must control. [Cue starts]

(Spock breaks chalice with one hand.)

MCCOY: Jim. [Cue ends] This is senseless.

*Here the preceding music is exactly the same as in the actual Spock's Brain episode from McCoy’s “But there is no mind” line, onwards - the entire sequence seems the same. The music fades more abruptly than it does in Requiem where it seems to end naturally.

I really wanted to know if the cue has accidentally been missed off the set, or whether I am mistaken?

In case some of you miss it, I've posted a question about this set here: http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=95788&forumID=1&archive=0

Don't know about anybody else, but I'm still pinching myself that we've got this set! Just seems incredible to me that ALL the tapes survived 4 decades, and what's more they (with a very occasional exception) sound utterly fantastic & freshly recorded! And it's all in one set! Amazing!

!

Once more I'd just like to say a very appreciative thanks to everybody involved in making this happen - it truly is a wondrous, very special set. The hours worth of enjoyment I've gotten from it has already paid back the cost several times over. Worth every penny, and then some!

Ahhhhh music! smile

I just saw this on my shelf again last night and thought I was looking at an illusion. It's truly great to have this set. LLL "pulled out all the stops" on this one. smile

I'm getting ready for a cross country (USA) road trip. I've decided I'm going to listen to this again completely in order. (Man Trap again, yikes.) Then the Movies. (Hmmm. That's 32 hours for a 27 hour trip. Well, I'll get through the TOS box. Maybe I'll skip the LP's on the TOS movies.)

I'm going to record notes as I listen. You have been warned.

Let us know what cues are the best STAR TREK driving music. I might make a CDR for the car.

Gotta say, the nice little trifecta of short scores by Fred Steiner from season one (The Corbomite Maneuver, Balance of Terror and What Are Little Girls Made Of?) makes for one of the best listening stretches in the whole set.

Would you guys believe that I am still not all the way through this set?! When I said I was going to slowly savor every second of this music I wasn't kidding. Just finished listening to "Spock's Brain" for the first time and it was wonderful. So much better than I every expected it to be. I'm with others on this board; when I look at this set on my shelf it still feels like a dream. I don't know how 2013 will end up for releases, but the last couple of years have been incredible for film score fans. Will we ever see another time like it?

Someone just posted this in a different forum, but I think it was somewhere in this thread that it was talked about James Horner using a permutation of the "Star Trek Love Theme" in Star Trek II. Horner speaks specifically about this in the interview below.

I don't know about a love theme, but there's certainly a passage in "Khan's Pets" that seemed reminiscent of TOS music.

what is this "love"? Does it involve a pressing together of the lips?

Of all the scenes, in all the shows, I think this is my favorite TOS love scene:

Ruth's Theme, by Gerald Fried, as used in 'This Side of Paradise'.

Spock was crazy for turning down Jill Ireland!
