    "Schooled by the legend", eh? I guess that lesson was....

    Jerry: You track this with Freud and I'll shove a lightsaber up your ass!
    Frakes: But that's not... a problem.

    Wasn't LLL supposed to work on a new edition for this one? Would be a very fine Black Friday title

    It just may be - curious what'd be new - would probably have the song from the 50th anniversary set - and I'm guessing all the songs from the original album.




    It's still my fave Trek film and score.

    Is there a need for one? (serious question).

    GNP Crescendo did an expanded version of First Contact several years ago (along with Generations and Insurrection). For my average listening ears at least, it sounds good enough. Is there a lot of extra material still missing?

    I really enjoyed the film but the score is forgettable. I only remember the one cue when the good aliens land.

    The rumor of a newly expanded FC was first sparked after a 2019 podcast interview with Bruce Botnick when he said that he had just finished working on a new album.

    Neil Bulk (somewhere in the Summertime Star Trek TWOK thread) confirmed that Botnick misspoke.

    So no new First Contact album.

    IMHO, we don't really need it.

    That being said, I'm a Trekkie music Bitch, so would rebuy it IF one was to materialize. LOL

    About two years ago it was leaked a 2CD set was coming from an unspecified label. No further information since. There's an FSM thread about it somewhere.

    The expanded GNP release is the complete film score plus at least two alternates (from memory; I'm not looking it up). For some folks that's fine, but for some like me, it's not enough.

    Aside from the fact that Ford says he likes to master the CD's for "the car test" (does it sound good in the car; a garbage way to master scores), there is more that can be included.

    There are at least three alternate cues worth having (I know, I know -- some people would probably like "variants" since there are not radically different), the songs (I can take or leave them, but I'd be disappointed if the Steppenwolf song isn't on there), the source music like the opera song Picard is listening to and the music playing in the holodeck-generated fine-dining restaurant the Borg step into, and I guess it's possible Jerry and/or Joel did some source music that wasn't used or not heard in full.

    With all that, a second disc would be nearly full.

    With Star Trek 2 my favorite Trek film. The fist contact scene is just beautiful in every way and Joel's take on his fathers main theme is the best action cue in this score. I currently try to get all 10 trek scores as expanded as possible but haven't any Picard ones yet. I look forward to get 3 & 10... this will be fun.

    Absolutely gorgeous theme in this score.

    IMHO.

    I remember opening day. I was going to technical college for electronics at the time. I got off early that day and went to see it by myself. I loved it, score and film! The FIRST CONTACT theme is my favorite Goldsmith composition.

    I remember seeing Generations on cable and I was bored out of my mind. I told a friend I'll never see a Next Generation film again. For some reason I cannot fathomed I saw First Contact in the theater by myself and really enjoyed it. The audience I saw it with loved it too and got all the Star Trek in-jokes.

    I wonder if we were in the same theater at the same time, it's a small world you know.wink

    I remember going to see it on Christmas Eve of the year it came out. It was part of a failed date though not bad date. We knew before the movie nothing was going to happen. Missed the first 10 minutes. But loved the movie and I loved it even more when I saw the first 10 minutes.

    Did they even get the one where Cochrane said: "And you people, you're all actors on... some kind of STAR TREK™ television show" ?

    Cine Capri in Phoenix, Arizona, opening night. That was a good night.

    That cannot possibly be a quarter century ago.

    I concur. I suspect Borg chronometric particles are at play here.

    I missed a chance to see it - November 22 was the day Independence Day came out on VHS and that took priority, then when I DID go to see First Contact a week or so later, it was sold out. I saw (and still enjoyed) Beavis and Butt-Head Do America instead.

    Then when First Contact hit VHS it had the same lenticular style for its cover iD4 did.

    This was a time that there was a 3 month gap between a US/UK release and the rest of Europe. So I took the ferry from Belgium to Dover, then the train to London to go watch it! Aaahhhh, when you're young, everything is possible smile

    I can't believe WOK was 40 years ago!!! Feels like yesterday to me.
