I keep coming back to this, even though I have little time to listen to my own collection these days, and plenty of other stuff to listen to.

Really glad for the album version and the alternates, etc. But when I listened to the album I had to immediately return to the first disc.

I'm not usually convinced that expansions are better representations of the music, but it's very much the case with TWOK - even if it does get weird for a while after the main titles. (I like that kind of stuff, so works for me!)

The album just still feels rushed to me, I love the added textures, space, and breathing. And so glad for the pure music of the epilogue now - and cool to have the album version intact. The Best of Both Worlds (oops, wrong generation wink).

And the sound is such a big improvement - hearing so much detail I don't recall noticing before.

Some great expansions have come out this year - especially this one, Love Field and Company Business.

All worth the repurchases.

I just noticed on La La Land's website it says now shipping, has it always said that or is it back in stock now?

I'm thrilled with this release. The sound is fantastic. And having read the liner notes, they tease out a lot of nuances in how the leitmotifs interact and have meaning in the story. So many musical meanings you heard but never put a name to.

It made me think about how much TWOK has in common with The Doomsday Machine. Both scores narrate the story so closely, you can see it unfold in your mind. Maybe it's not a coincidence that they are the best original episode and the best film of the franchise. Having arguably the two best scores, or at least such detailed leitmotif scores, makes them irresistible.

I preordered on the day it went live through the SAE site, and though they "cashed my check", as it were, my order still says "Pending." Lesson learned: order direct from the label in the future.

We hope by Friday

Thanks for your take on this, Sean.

How about some 'Enterprise in the Mutara Nebula' ambiance from the 2016 Blu-ray menu?

I'm losing track. I do remember I'm CURRENTLY awaiting a replacement AI disc. Also still CURRENTLY waiting for a replacement for a recent faulty Intrada release with misplaced track markers. Also CURRENTLY waiting for Intrada to decide what they are going to do after they confirmed on their website there are ticking noises with their new Julius Caesar release. Still CURRENTLY waiting for Star Trek II to be pressed weeks after release and purchase. Is there anything else I'm currently waiting to be resolved, that I've forgotten?

You need a log book specifically for score collecting, I've had one since the great PINK PATHER STRIKES AGAIN defect of 2015!wink

I understand those things happen, but what I do hate is when you find out about a defect too late and can't get a replacement.

I'm still waiting for an official statement about Intrada's SPECIES II glitches, but it seems that's not going to happen.

The terminology in Trek II is weird. "Hyperchannel" instead of "subspace." They repeatedly say "spacedock" when the footage is clearly drydock. "Mr. Scott on discrete" is also peculiar.

And stopping the "energizers." What are energizers? Clearly James Doohan isn't tech savvy...his line "I have to take the mains off the line" was probably scripted as "I have to take the mains offline."


it's nautical speak: main[sail]s off the [furling] line

Sorry if this has been mentioned before but, what’s the difference between the film and album versions of Battle in the Mutara Nebula?

Page 22 of the booklet describes the overlay in the film version in detail. The overlay was also on the previous release from Retrograde.

Ahhh just found it. Thanks! So, 7:14 -7:30 in the film version features the wild orchestra overlay. Very cool.
