New Enterprise Main Title
Star Trek: Enterprise

September 10, 2003

Advanced reviews of the Season 3 opening episode "The Xindi" reveal that the opening title sequence remains largely the same, with the only change being revised music.

I've had a chance to see the new opening, and considering that the visuals have not changed, it's difficult to understand why the music was altered (the vocals appear to be the same). The new remix certainly doesn't match up with Enterprise's new mission--the pursuit of the Xindi and the defense of Earth, so why make the change?

Dennis McCarthy's score for the Enterprise episode "The Expanse" has been nominated for an Emmy: Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Dramatic Underscore). Without knowing the process by which a score is nominated, it is surprising that Brian Tyler's "Canamar" score was not nominated. The winner for this category will be announced on September 13, 2003. (Creative Arts awards are handed out before the main Emmy presentations on September 21, 2003).

A new and very rare soundtrack has been added to Star Trek Soundtracks. Ron Jones and Brian Luzietti's score to the computer game Starfleet Academy was packaged with some versions of the game, but the soundtrack was never available for sale separately. It's taken years to find a copy, but I finally found one.

Star Trek Nemesis SACD Special Edition
Star Trek Nemesis

February 25, 2003

Varese Sarabande Records released the SACD Special Edition of the Star Trek Nemesis soundtrack on February 25, 2003. SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc) is a multi-channel, high resolution (64 times the sampling rate of a CD) format that competes with DVD-Audio. A hybrid disc, this release will contain three versions of the score; multichannel SACD, stereo SACD, and stereo CD. The Star Trek Nemesis SACD Special Edition will play in regular CD players, but you will need an SACD player in order to get the full multi-channel, high-res experience. Although it is labeled as a "Special Edition" on the Varese Sarabande web site, the actual packaging makes no reference to this, and the musical content (as well as the artwork and most of the liner notes) is the same as the original CD release.
