Jerry Goldsmith: Star Trek - The Motion Picture

Star Trek the Motion Picture Shatner Nimoy Wise

Released: 1979 (Star Trek: The Motion Picture - The Enterprise) 
Director: Robert Wise
Cast: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley

The Film: Star Trek: The Motion Picture (Paramount Pictures, 1979) was the third science fiction film directed by Robert Wise, the Academy-Award-winning director (and editor of Citizen Kane ). Star Trek: The Motion Picture was based on the original series of the science fiction television show, Star Trek .

The Score: Was it really 1979? Thatcher’s landslide, Sony Walkmans and the launch of Trivial Pursuit ? Yes it was. With music by Jerry Goldsmith, the famous paunches of the Starship Enterprise boldly went where no paunches had been before. Since the last time, that is. Great music.
