  1. The Human Adventure is Just Beginning”

    50 years of Star Trek! 50 years of memorable characters, interesting stories, iconic ships, and 50 years of classic music. This is my tribute to the fantastic music that has accompanied all the adventures from 1966 to today.

    The music presented is not in any particular order, just what I felt made a good transition from one to another. I started out inspired by an old MIDI medley I’ve had since back in the 90’s, and used that as a starting point, updating it to reflect all 6 TV series and 13 movies. I hope you enjoy this symphonic medley celebrating 50 years and beyond for Star Trek.

  2. Star Trek Mega Suite 1: Space, The Final Frontier [Extended Cut]
    Way back in 2010 when I started this Star Trek Mega Suite project, there wasn’t nearly as much Star Trek music available as there is now. When I started with Star Trek: Enterprise in the first suite, there was only the “Broken Bow” CD and a few rare promo CDs out there. However, in the last several years we’ve been fortunate to see expanded/complete soundtracks for all the movies and several large collections of music from the Star Trek television series. Ever since, I’ve wanted to return to this suite and do an extended cut with better transitions.

    Star Trek: Enterprise is a great show that really grew on me, with I think some of the best music produced for a Star Trek television show. With this extended cut, I wanted to feature music from all four seasons, from Broken Bow to These Are The Voyages. As before, the suite starts with First Contact, then transitions to Enterprise, then a hint of the 2009 Star Trek theme to represent the briefly glimpsed Kelvin era, and finally the amazing Star Trek medley Dennis McCarthy ended the series on.

    I hope you guys enjoy this new extended version. If you still want to listen to the original version, I’m leaving it up (I’m not going to pull a George Lucas and make it unavailable for those that prefer it). Before anyone asks, no, I don’t have any plans to extend any of the other Star Trek suites at this time, it was really just this one I wanted to do.

  3. Star Trek Mega Suite 2: These Are The Voyages

    Part 2 finally arrives! Thanks to all of you that have been waiting patiently, I appreciate all the likes, comments and subscriptions. This piece covers The Original Series and The Motion Picture.

    This suite was one of the more difficult ones for me. On the one hand, TOS has some great and memorable themes and motifs that I really wanted to use. On the other hand, it’s difficult to transition from the “tone” of that music into TMP.

    While I tried to feature a lot of familar themes, there were many more I didn’t include. This was meant as merely a suite that is evocative of The Original Series as a whole, rather than specific scenes or episodes. However, I do have some ideas for other suites that could feature some of the themes I left out – for example, I’m considering a Vulcan/Spock medley, which would certainly feature the famous Amok Time fight music. Similarly, the TMP Klingon theme would go into a Klingon medley. Ultimately I decided against including Animated Series music because it was non-canon, a little corny sounding, and not many good clean tracks exist.

    Note to viewers: This is NOT a music video. The still image is just for something appropriate to look at, but this is primarily an audio piece.
