The beginning of this thread has gotten a bit outdated now, because we are not only about to get Insurrection complete, but *before* it we got Best of Both Worlds complete, and GNP has hinted at more, both in this thread:
"Star Trek is a great part of our catalog but we do actually have an otherwise large repertoire that we manage. We're happy to polish up some of the older releases now (yes, you should thank Lukas), but we haven't been gone, just doing non-Trek things."

...and in the recent press release for Insurrection:
"GNP Crescendo Records is proud to announce another volume in its continuing series of expanded Star Trek releases."

That to me says there is more Trek to come from them (if Insurrection was the last I think they would have said something along those lines rather than referring to a "continuing series" at the end of it) so I for one am looking forward to Encounter at Farpoint, complete and remastered with new liner notes!

And like I said in the first post, I hope they don't forget any other in-perpetuity soundtracks they have in addition to Trek.

"but we haven't been gone, just doing non-Trek things."

Well, it's not like they stopped doing Trek albums and continued to put other soundtracks on the market. If you enjoy the other genres they offer, then sure, they've been around. However, as far as film score aficionados are concerned, GNP was gone for quite a while.

I'm just as glad to have them "back" and hope to see more non-Trek film and TV music albums come from them.

Personally I'd love an expanded edition for "Caretaker" since I like this one a whole lot. There wasn't much music missing (I think) but all the material from the beginning, where the Voyager is docked on DS9 and starts its mission sadly wasn't included. Imho it hurts the listening experience a bit, because other than Goldsmith's main title you have to wait a long, long time on the OST before his theme actually appears in Chattaway's score as well.

(And since I don't like the Banjo-music on there at all, I sure wouldn't mind a version of Track 5 without that inclusion of the Banjo-music. I'm not even sure why it was added there in the first place. When I first listened to the OST, I thought that would be how it appeared in the episode, but when I watched it again the next time I noticed this wasn't the case at all. The banjo-music on the OST doesn't even sound like the one in the show.)

I was thinking of Voyager myself.

I'd also love to have the complete release for "Encounter At Farpoint", some good music left off that.

I think it would really be great to release an expanded version of the "Caretaker" with that wonderful cues around the docking at DS9. That would make the album even more interesting.

I also think that "Encounter at Farpoint" is badly in need of a remastering. It could work wonders for this wonderful McCarthy score. Look what could be done on the expanded "Generations"! smile

There's been some more discussion of the missing cues in the Voyager pilot score release in this new thread presumably targeted at LLL (but they don't have access to the pilot score, presumably):
http://filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=94597&forumID=1&archive=0&pageID=2&r=562#bottom

Though I was somewhat underwhelmed by the previous version, the discussion in that thread has me more interested in a remastered expansion because a decent amount of the missing material is supposed to feature variations on Goldsmith's fantastic theme, which was one of the things I missed in the underscore. Here's hoping GNP puts out expanded and remastered editions of that and Encounter at Farpoint, and I'd welcome input on what important stuff might be missing from their original release of DS9's pilot, The Emissary...

I would be very happy to see an expanded “Encounter At Farpoint.” I love McCarthy's soulful work at the beginning of the series (I'm one of the few who LOVED all of the “Haven” material on the Next Generation set).

I'm sure most people have caught the news in the other thread, but just in case I'll just mention that GNP has reissued Encounter at Farpoint, expanding and remastering it, as well as featuring new Jeff Bond liner notes! Not only that, but they've added the complete episode score to Arsenal of Freedom:

Pretty great news, and I can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves next. After they finish with the Trek stuff they control the rights to, I hope they take a look at some other things they might own in perpetuity, such as Lee Holdridge's lovely Old Gringo...

I wonder if they still have rights to any Godzilla music.
