That Bob Peak artwork is incredible ... for TREK II, as well. It's not often that cover art is a selling point for me, but even if these were just reissues -- well, I'd be awfully tempted to buy them on the strength of the artwork alone! (And the superb art direction of Mr. Sikoryak, of course...)

just compare this art to the newest ST movie.(and the dvd was even lamer!)

Oh, and who else thinks that this version has more attractive artwork than the LP?


This is my favorite version of the movie poster. The LP version was just butt uglyU-)


well, in fairness it is an excellent TEASER poster

OMG, how people are even able to already find something to complain about here is beyond me. But to each his own. I have nothing to complain about this release.

What i wonder about is why SAE is charging considerably more shipping costs for a multi disc set when there is really not that much difference in weigh and packaging between a single disc and a 2-disc release... the mysteries of the world! But of course that did not stop me from ordering STIII!


wow, stop complaining, please! If you can not pay that little extra shipping you dont need this release!!!


stop you whining, Spielboy!

"wow, stop complaining, please! If you can not pay that little extra shipping you dont need this release!!! "

Woa, i hope you are joking because my criticism of SAE's business policy as far as shipping costs is concerned was clearly separate from my comments of the release and its well justified pricing itself!


He got ya, fair and square.
No way out of this one big guy

yeah, last time I checked this was a free message board, when anyone could share his opinion.

I also dont like the extra 5$ for a second CD I already have and I wouldnt want that with every expanded release to come as a trend. JUST THAT.

the "if you cant pay 25 then you cant pay 20" remark is amazing, specially considering these economically troubled days we are living.



I guess that's just a little bit of tough luck, eh?

Seriously this bitching needs to stop...most of us have waited literally years for a complete release for this score (and Star Trek II). So if you're really that unhappy about it because of the extra $5, don't buy it and quit pissing on everyone else' parade.


if you are unhappy with this post why don't you just stop reading it?
Or better yet
start your own post "For STIII-FSM worshippers only"

What about CBS? Per Lukas in one of the Star Trek II threads from last year, Treks I and V are owned by Sony. They are indeed still in print and also available on iTunes... which I hope doesn't complicate things! smile

The way the companies are structured, CBS owns everything Trek-related, except for the films which are still Paramount (I think).

Quick Clarification:

ALL TV SERIES - GNP has rights in perp to the music they released (Universal has the Enterprise rights to the music they released). CBS has all other rights to any and all unreleased music.

ST TMP - Sony... Paramount... Sony.... Paramount.... Sony.... Paramount.... Mommie make it stop!

ST II Kahn - WEA/Paramount (on FSM)

ST III Spock - Capital/Paramount (on FSM)

ST IV: Voyage - MCA/Paramount

ST V: Frontier - Sony/Paramount

ST VI: Country - MCA/Paramount

ST Generations - GNP/Paramount

ST First Contact - GNP/Paramount

ST Insurrection - GNP/Paramount

ST Nemesis - Varese/Paramount

So, in other words if a third party comes into play they have to take both beauties to the ball...one for each arm. wink

PS Do not rely on iTunes for in print/out of print information. Sometimes the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing... and vice versa

If people have problems with SAE's shipping prices, why not order from somewhere else? It's what I do.

Wow, MV. Thanks for the clarification. Good to know this for the time being where all rights seem to lie.

This is fortuitous. I was just talking to the heads of Sony and Paramount at a cocktail party the other night. I'm going to tweet both of them right now.

What I can't understand is why SAE and some other retailers still charge an extra CD shipping for releases like this, considering that the diference in weight is negligible. It was understandable for that old big 2CD cases but now it looks like an additional source of income


That's why I ordered that FSM Lalo Schifrin set from MovieMusic, along with two other titles to get $1 shipping for all three instead of the nearly $10 shipping it would have cost to order just the Schifrin set from SAE. eek

If he's your cousin, why don't you ask him?

I can't believe my eyes. They tell me it's real, but I still don't.

Then again, I still don't believe that I've got the complete score to RoboCop sitting on my shelf.

Or complete Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.


And thank you FSM. Don't listen to the naysayers. .


Right. Do not pay any attention to your customer base. You know, the ones that buy your product.
Fortunately, LK and co. will ignore you ill-advice. They actually care what their customers think.

But he's also smart enough to know that the "customer base" is, in fact, a few thousand people with a wide variety of preferences. And only a small percentage of them post here. And I see no reason to believe we're any sort of cross-section of the people who actually buy the CDs. So when a half-dozen people here express outrage that this wasn't produced in the exact way they wanted, Lukas should indeed take note, but he'd be very, very foolish to put too much stock in it.

Getting back to the music, there's one cue from this film that I've always particularly enjoyed. There's a great fanfare followed by some tense suspense music as the Enterprise arrives at Genesis. I suppose this must be included in Spock Endures Pon Farr? I'd have thought it would be a separate piece. Anyways, I've never quite understood the bad reputation this film and score has among fans. The film is a great companion piece to Khan and one hell of a lot better than most sequels that come out today and I actually find I enjoy its score more than Khan's. There's something to be said for its more meditative nature. Looking forward to the CD!
