Best Movie Soundtracks - 1970s
5. Star Trek
Right from the beginning of the Star Trek saga, the series' creator Gene Roddenberry wanted Jerry Goldsmith to compose the music. However Goldsmith was busy at the time so his first appointment came in the form of the first Star Trek movie in 1979. Inspired by John Williams' sweeping, romantic scores for Star Wars, Goldsmith wrote what many consider to be his best score, and would go on to write for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, and Star Trek: Nemesis, as well as the themes to the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager.
