oh boy, \the nutjobs who want every cue individualized are gonna be pissed!

Only when importing in Itunes wink

Try to type up this baby from the Ron Jones set:

29. Experiment Failed M33/ Shut Down M34/ Crystal Breakdown M41/ Working on It M42/ Only Way M43/ 26 Minutes M44/ Possibility M51


That's why if you're good at editing, gapless playback is the way to go. razz

With the 5:00 added on the FSM Ron Jones box, this new complete version appears to have between three and three and a half minutes of truly new material (the GNP website in marking "unreleased" music in bold does not take into account the final FSM box). That's actually about twice as much new stuff as I was expecting -- cool! smile

But of course I can't wait to hear this with its improved sound quality and Lukas/Takis liner notes. I hope that we'll also get Jeff Bond track-by-track liner notes as a supplemental PDF like we did on their reissues of First Contact and Generations....

Yes, but like you, to me the real appeal of this is the apparently much-improved sound. The FSM Jones box included what they considered the most worthy five minutes of the eight or so then-unreleased minutes of score, and honestly, they don't do much for me. I can't imagine those last three are going to be the ones that really sing.

Seen the new transfer as well and loved it, especially the way they handled the transition between the two episodes. I was wondering, did they ever revisit the storyline with Riker turning down his own command in the seasons that followed? Can't really remember.

Well, I'm one of those people (probably in the minority) who loved practically every minute of the Ron Jones box and would not have preferred edited versions of the scores. Even the short cues worked really well in context. I suspect that's why the short cues from BoBW on the Jones box didn't work for you; they weren't in context and out of it they were just bitty parts. Now that they've been edited into the complete score, I think they'll flesh it out nicely and I expect an improved listening experience with the 8+ minutes of new material added in to GNP's previous album program.

Now Babylon 5 on the other hand...though I love the show and the music for it I wish they'd edited out some of the transitional cues and stingers and such at the very least. But then as much as I love Christopher Franke I think Ron Jones is a better composer. smile

TrekCore (or TrekMovie, though they seem to have stopped their soundtrack focus) should really do a little feature/interview on this great reissue!

The edit for the single Blu-Ray release wasn't bad but it was a bit wonky.

Regarding further plots of Riker turning down his own command, no that was the last time they visited that.

Grant he was Captain of the Enterprise in a fantasy reality of "Future Imperfect" then again from a parallel reality from the episode "Parallels" but that's about it.

There was no actual other stories regarding him turning down his own command after after that.

Any chance autographed copies still available? I know, e-mail them and ask because they will not post here.

You can always ask Ford through Facebook.


Thanks, but Ford is not someone I would want as a facebook friend. I do not use facebook much.
I will try to get one, I see he said they might have some left.

That's pretty much the answer I got.

No. Never revisited Riker turning down his own command again. Closest you get to resolution is Riker as future enterprise captain in all good things and I thought in later movies as captain of either enterprise or some starship.

I got an e-mail from BSX about the autographed copies at about 4am last night, and had my order in at about 4:15. This will go very well with my autographed Ron Jones set.

Riker does become captain of the USS Titan during Star Trek: Nemesis.

I just got the following email from GNP regarding this.

"Due to regrettable oversight the ship date for the new Best of Both Worlds is looking more likely to be Friday 24th May, as opposed to the Monday 20th we originally planned for. If we get our hands on the product before then, we will begin shipping immediately."

Ya but that's AFTER he finally accepted his own command. As far as TURNING DOWN any other commands they never had any stories regarding that after this episode.

The STAR TREK music renaissance has turned into such a lavish outpouring of CDs, it's incredible. I did not see it coming when THE WRATH OF KHAN was announced. Did anybody?

I don't know that I saw it coming, but what we've gotten is exactly what I was hoping for when TWOK was announced.
