Gregory Smith, who scored a handful of DS9 episodes and worked as an orchestrator on Enterprise, is conducting the newly re-recorded opening theme for the upcoming CGI-enhanced HD remastered versions of the original Star Trek series. A video preview of the remaster work features a brief sequence on the "new" theme song. It should be noted that this new opening theme is using the original arrangements.

CBS Paramount has announced that the original Star Trek series is getting a CGI face-lift. Of particular note to music fans, the opening theme is being re-recorded, "The refurbished episodes also feature higher quality sound for the famous opening theme. The original score by Emmy Award-winning composer Alexander Courage, has been re-recorded in state-of-the-art digital stereo audio with an orchestra and a female singer belting out the famous vocals." This will undoubtedly not sit well with some fans, but keep in mind that the original episodes with the original music are not going to be lost forever.

We have a pulse...Star Trek lives! The official Star Trek site confirms that J.J. Abrams, creator and producer of ABC's hit show Lost, will be producing and directing "Star Trek XI." Although it is far too early to know who will score the film, it is probably a safe bet that Michael Giacchino, who has scored other Abrams projects, will be the one chosen for the task. Michael's official site is down at the time of this writing, but you can check out his work at IMDB.
