I am loving this set. I haven't had this much fun with a release before!

I am having a hard time locating the cue used in the episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield." It's from the beginning of the episode, when the Enterprise discovers a stolen shuttle craft ... it is snare heavy music, really suspenseful. I "think" it's from "Elaan of Troius" but I am not sure.

Where oh where? wink

LOL! Nearly 50 years after the episode aired, I think we can dispense with the spoiler bars. Especially since it's pretty certain he wasn't dead. :-)


Sure, but in fairness, there are plenty of people who weren't even around for it the first time. There are always new people discovering Star Trek.


Like me, for example.

I did watch some episodes from TNG and then nothing until I saw the reboot and got hooked. But I haven't watched the original series yet.


Well....okay, as long as some people here are still newly discovering it. At least I wasn't douche enough to blow it for you anyway. :-)

"Spock's Brain" has some of the finest moments in the entire series. Well done, Fred! But the disc that keeps drawing me back is Season 2, Disc 3. A real trifecta, that one. "Who Mourns for Adonais?", top five score. "Mirror, Mirror"?; the best pleasure from a guilty pleasure of an episode that takes Star Trek's humanism and inverts it to entertaining effect. It's music so good it has you rooting for Evil Chekov and Evil Sulu. "By Any Other Name"?; Another triumph for Steiner, and all the more so because he was composing for a third-rate episode, albeit one with a great James Doohan comic performance. The staccato Neutralizer motif gives it all the excitement the script lacks. The agony on Kirk's face during "Broken Block", plus the music, makes this episode all it can be.

just playing the 1st cd. I love how the pingings/tinklings thruout WHERE NO MAN have been raised up - it's like stereo.
Have a question about the now-included Kirk-Mitchell fight cue, 28 Power Mad. In the episode, when Mitchel throws off Kirk (holding rock) and stands up, there is some musical percussion or drumming. It would be at 3:50 in the cue, but isnt there. Was it added later, and therefore not considered part of the cue? I guess it's suppose to be the fx of the rock landing, but it coincides with Mitchell's standing up, so it seems more part of the score.

Also wondering where the last cue in "A Private Little War" might be?

As has been said, stunning. The complete scores vindicates our obsession for the music.

I was wondering what hiss/noise reduction software was used on this project. The mixes sound very nice and warm.

I am listening to them thru my JBL Eon 10 G2 keyboard monitors and rumbling the house.smile

Thanks Charles! I rarely post here but I want to reiterate how we all knew we were really working on something special. An amazing highlight! Even got to heard my dad on the Mullendore cues. I can't express how grateful I am to be involved.

I know Chris Malone (my friend, in Orson Welles' words) did some cleanup, pitch adjustment, and got rid of most of the tics and clicks. For all you audio nerds out there, we did the whole kit and kaboodle at 96K/24bit, and it only went down to 44.1K right before the final master. I use SoundBlade 2.0 by Sonic Studio (google them) and their noise reduction is the best on the market.

I listened through my Dunlavy SC VI's and felt very close to these recordings!

I have played all of season three, most of season two and about a third of season one including all library cues, alternates, outtakes, whatever, for all seasons, and I still cannot find the brief slice of music that plays when the Enterprise fires on the Tholian ship in "The Tholian Web". I have always liked that cue since I was a kid because of the way it sustains for a few seconds after the phaser stops firing. Mr. Kendall, do you or anyone else on the board know if this music is buried in the set somewhere and if so, where is it? I may have missed it with all the nonstop listening or I haven't heard it yet but I am getting impatient to find it. Thank you all.

I'm stuck at work for a few nights, so although my set arrived (see photos), I've barely touched it.

So far it looks like guys are looking for the somber fly-off at the end of "A Private Little War" and the Enterprise firing on the Tholian ship cue.

If it should turn out that a few seconds are missing from 17 hours of music, I'll be cool with that. I just wish I were on vacation, at this of all times! That would have been perfect.

Captain Play-off No. 3 (Sad and Alone). Season 2 disc 5 Track 31

Just go to the Library cues, flash through them one by one and you'll find a ton of stuff you're looking for. A lot of cues we thought were composed specifically for episodes were actually in those sessions.

I would strongly doubt there's anything missing. Certainly nothing of consequence. So far every bit of what I remember is there, and much more.

excellent, thank you! I looked in the Library cue list and didnt see the episode title (I thought it was only used in that show, and they'd link the name to it parenthetically). Then I figured it would be easier to ask.
Were cues in the "Alternates and Outtakes" section not used in the shows?

I would be shocked if anything is missing. Much more likely is that in the course of doing the library tracking, they excerpted and overlaid fragments of cues in such a way as to make them sound like new pieces, but they really aren't.

While ripping the ST:TOS set onto my PC, I had another disc from season three on the stereo and heard the tracked cue that accompanies the multiple times Losira (in "That Which Survives") transforms into one dimension, which then vertically contracts into nothingness. I can't find it again! Help me!

Finished season one and disc one season 2...now playing disc 2/AMOK TIME.....the sound quality on these is...well...STELLAR. Thank you to all involved for this set.

My favorite chunk right now is "Headin' Out To Eden" and Other Space Hippie Hits.

Yea, brother.

We reach.

I found the Losira "Dimensional Disappearance" cue. It's from the Wilbur Hatch third-season re-recordings of Courage's "The Man Trap" cue, "First Goner". Hatch's performance is better, I think. It really added a lot to "That Which Survives" which, in the planetoid scenes, needed the help.

I think the music works better on cd because you dont see the performers

I must either not have watched "Where No Man Has Gone Before" enough or I'm deaf (or that part wasn't used in the episode) but I never heard the reprise of Vina's theme in the score until listening to disc 1 tonight. It was a great surprise and yet another fine variation on one of the best themes in the series. It took me back to my first listen to the GNP release and my sudden realization that "Vina's Dance" was, in reality, an exotic spin on her theme. How dumb I suddenly felt.

I can't seem to find the episode score to errand of mercy it's in season 1 or is my set the lucky one to miss an episode?

"Errand of Mercy" was a tracked episode.
