Are those good seats? I have to buy my tickets today and I'm not sure where to sit.

OT. They told me "partially obstructed" but I am basically going to be within about 15 feet of the orchestra, so that is fine by me, I believe the result is somewhat blocked view of the bottom of the screen, but that is alright with me, because I am almost sitting with the orchestra. And the advantage, at least here, is that these were not very expensive seats.

The orchestra I'm told by sources I trust is only about 35 CZECH players who were imported for this concert series.

In addition I'm also told they are playing with tracks that were recorded earlier and run by a couple of American Players in order to get a fuller sound and save $$$.

The LA Concert will have an 80 piece orchestra I'm told (The AFM had a fit when they heard about this and had 55 LA players contacted for those performances), but it's possible they will still be using pre-recorded tracks at that concert as well.

Make of that what you will.

I had a sneaking suspicion that was the case. The orchestra was on the small side when I saw it in Boston, yet it sounded surprisingly "full." The program book only lists 30 players, and it is particularly light on the brass (2 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, tuba), only four woodwinds and two percussionists. In addition, when they played the Main Title from The Motion Picture, the trumpets cracked a few notes at the beginning when the theme came in, and on the CD I swear they miss the same notes, so that led me to wonder if the pre-recorded CD was played "over" the live players during the show.

Even if this confirms my suspicion, it in no way ruins my enjoyment of the show. I think it was a wonderful program, and I would eagerly see it again if it came back to my area.

Is the CD no longer being sold online? The direct link comes up with a 404 now.

Apparently not. T-shirts posters and program booklets only. What gives?

Maybe they sold out. Underestimated the passion of Star Trek fans.

I was just about ready to purchase it too. Hope it comes back in stock.

Either it's back in stock now, or the link was temporarily broken. Working fine for me.

I thought it was a very enjoyable show, a very expert use of film clips intermingled. You can get a taste of how scenes would be scored by someone else. The Dorn voiceover, sometimes a bit much, but you just roll with it and in the end it works out. If you can get a reasonable ticket it is well worth it.

The Star Trek Facebook page is reporting: "Trek composers Dennis McCarthy (LA only), Jay Chattaway and Ron Jones are guest conducting Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage in LA and San Diego."

I'll see the show in San Diego later this week. smile

I would imagine you will have a good time, I certainly did.
It is a Trek love fest, but really great music.

Yeah it is not the LSO, but they do pretty good.

I was at the Austin show with my wife. We had a good time overall but it definitely catered more to the casual Star Trek fan than a film music fan, which makes complete sense (the place was packed) and definitely played well to the audience but still diminished the experience somewhat for me. I dug the idea of showing video montages over the music, and going in with the idea of having some dialogue and sound effects didn't bother me, but I didn't expect just how much they'd be talking over the music. For a celebration of the music, they sure featured an awful lot of dialogue. The montage over the Star Trek Voyager theme was especially egregious as they had characters talking over practically every second of the piece. And the fact that they re-used some clips to fill out the montages was especially annoying. God forbid they just didn't talk there. Or they could have at least chosen another moment from the countless other memorable scenes in the series. And the Michael Dorn narration was absolute eye-rolling Trans-Siberian Orchestra bad. Just a laundry list of Star Trek characters... "Kirk, Picard, Q, Phlox, Tribbles, Janeway, Stardate, Enterprise, etc." And yet despite all that, it was still great to hear this music played live, and I got a nifty CD set out of it too, so good times overall.

Alex, I would have met you if I had known you were there that night.
I was third row.

Agreed on your points, but I enjoyed it
