Just sayin'.

They've done great work on their "Next Generation" and "Deep Space Nine" sets, I'm anxiously awaiting more...and "Voyager" has some impressive music.

i'd take some as well but not to discourage this thread but let's have enterprise first. but i am firmly on board for both!

Enterprise would be far more interesting - especially if it would include two Tyler's scores, one from McKenzie and if I remember correctly Frizzell did at least 2 episodes too... all these could easily cover 2 CDs... add another one for Chattaway and McCarthy and one more for Velton Ray Bunch and perhaps one for other bits and pieces and it's really awesome 6CD set.

Although it would be fantastic to have all music from the double episode In a Mirror, Darkly.

I'd love to see a Voyager release as well. I can't remember that many episodes but I do recall a few two parters with some very memorable music, I think they were Basics, The Year of Hell and The Killing Game. I especially recall David Bell composing some fantastic scores for Voyager, I just don't remember the episode names. I'd also be in for a more in-depth Enterprise release, and certainly also another TNG album focusing more on season 1-3 action music.
Was the music for Voyager very different from DS9 or were there a lot of similarities? Just wondering about that because the series were produced more or less around the same time.

Pretty similar. Voyager had its last two years to itself as DS9 had ended and its music is slightly more dynamic in that period. Still, there's plenty of worthy music to be released from earlier seasons as well and I think a 4-CD set like DS9 would be terrific. McCarthy wrote some wonderfully sensitive material for episodes like "Year of Hell" and ""Real Life", Chattaway was getting increasingly more aggressive, culminating in fine work for the series finale, "End Game" and of course, David Bell's sound was a series mainstay. His work stands out less to me because of the sheer repetition but I remember a wonderful theme in "11:59".

Probably the first time those words have ever appeared in that order. smile

He wrote another great and moving cue for the episode "Drone". That should be included in a Voyager set.

Why not an Enterprise/Voyager set? Star Trek music is generally enjoyed regardless of which show it was on if you like that kind of soundtrack. Why not put these two shows together? Seems like a good way to go.

GNP Crescendo already has Voyager music available to buy. Both of the Best of Star Trek volumes have some and the score release for Caretaker is also available. As far as I know the only Enterprise music out there is the Broken Bow release.

Musically, the two shows are *very* different. Enterprise started out as an extension of Voyager's musical universe but for whatever reason, the shackles were released by mid-season 2 and the composers went wild. The orchestral elements were notably more dynamic but there was also an increased usage of electronics and especially percussion. There's enough good music in both shows for separate releases and there'd be less stylistic whiplash that way.

I agree combining these two isn't a good option. Both have more than enough interesting music than they deserve individual, multidisc releases. If we have to wait a bit longer for Voyager, so be it. I'd rather get two superior individual products than one combined album that was rushed because people are impatient.

And as has already been said, between the two, Voyager already has more music out there. Its release from LLL could probably get away with 3 discs, but Enterprise deserves at least 4, if not 5, all to itself.

It's a minor point, but designing suitable cover art and liner notes would be problematic for a combined set of these two, as Enterprise completely abandoned most of the typefaces as well as the overall aesthetics used for the Trek series set in the 24th-century. The LCARs inspired layout used for La-La-Land's TNG and DS9 sets would be appropriate for Voyager, but look completely out of place on an Enterprise set.

And finally, while this has nothing to do with the quality of Voyager's music... to be frank, as a TV show, it leaves a lot to be desired. Most of it was dreck, with the exception of episodes about the Doctor; and I give the credit for that to Robert Picardo being awesome, rather than writing skill. Captain Proton episodes also tended to be very enjoyable, and if there's any Captain Proton music still unreleased I'd love for LLL to include that on their inevitable Voyager set.

I'm hoping for the complete or most of the score to the following 2 part episodes following:
"The Year of Hell"
"Scorpion"
"Dark Frontier"

While I don't recall all the episode scores, here are some I remember liking/loving:


"End Game" (Jay Chattaway)
"Flesh And Blood" (David Bell)
"Unimatrix" Parts 1 & 2 (Dennis McCarthy)
"Survival Instinct" (Dennis McCarthy)
"Blink of An Eye" (Paul Baillargeon)
"Dark Frontier" Parts 1 & 2 (David Bell)
"Scorpion" Parts 1 & 2 (Jay Chattaway)

"Blink of An Eye" - Paul Baillargeon)
I remember the last time I saw this, I was truck before by the music as I had no previously been. I concentrated on it very much, and was moved even to some tears.

"Message In a Bottle" (Paul Baillargeon)
I particularly remember some short bursts of exciting music during the battle with the Romulan warbirds.

"Hope and Fear" (Dennis McCarthy)
I remember some dark and brooding music, as only he can do, for many scenes, especially the climax when Janeway and the screw beam of the fake Federation ship, the Dauntless, a leaving Arturis alone as the ship comes out of slipstream drive, into Borg space and then being surrounded by Borg cubes. This was one of the better episodes of an otherwise poor series. There wasn't a heck of a lot to watch back then when you had rabbit ears!

Sounds like Enterprise might be next. Which is cool as it had interesting music. However, for Voyager I'd like to see something a long these lines.

Disc 1 (Chattaway)
1) Non Sequitur - I just rewatched it recently. It had some memorable cues.
2) The Chute - Dark and moody
3) Scorpion 1 and 2 - This goes without saying.
4) Night - Another active, moody score. Some Captain Proton at the beginning too.
5) Equinox 1 and 2 - A series highlight
6) The Haunting of Deck 12 - That shut down sequence is awesome.
7) The Void - We may be focusing too much on the action cues at this point but this was a very aggressive score for Voyager.
8) Endgame

Disc 2 (McCarthy)
1) Tattoo - Some interesting and thematic music for Chakotay.
2) Basics 1 and 2 - Especially part 2.
3) Real Life - Awesome emotional cues.
4) Year of Hell 1 and 2
5) Drone
6) Relativity - great action score.
7) Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy
8) Renaissance Man

Disc 3 (Bell, Baillargeon)
1) Waking Moments (Bell)
2) The Killing Game 1 and 2 (Bell)
3) Dark Frontier (Bell)
4) 11:59 (Bell)
5) Flesh and Blood (Bell)
6) Blink of an Eye (Baillargeon)
7) Live Fast and Prosper (Baillargeon)
8) Q2 (Baillargeon)

You've pretty much included almost everything I'd want. I'll toss in Chattaway's "Pathfinder" (which has a terrific action cue at the end).

DJBKRetro, you compiled a nice list there!
I would also include missing material from the pilot score. If I remember correctly the album did not include some really great cues for the Voyager at DS9 scenes!

Hey I'd buy that set :-)
I'd also add the season 2 episode 'Twisted' 'The 37's 'where Janeway re activates Earhart's tube and 'Deadlock' [great action music] and 'Resolutions' Season7 episode 'Shattered' and 'Workforce'

Why not an Enterprise/Voyager set? Star Trek music is generally enjoyed regardless of which show it was on if you like that kind of soundtrack. Why not put these two shows together? Seems like a good way to go.

I'm going to go with everyone else and split these two series up. If you put these together, then everybody loses. Either people will bitch because too many "favorite episodes" will be left out or it'll be a 15 CD collection for another $250 that 12 people will buy and everyone else will download.

As for Voyager, I didn't see a mention for David Bell's "Dark Frontier" and Jay Chattaway's "Dragon's Teeth" had some great music to go with some of the best visuals in the series.

Also as a thread stealer, how would Enterprise get divided up? McCarthy Disc 1, Chattway Disc 2, Brian Tyler and Others Disc 3, Season 4 (Synthesizer) Disc 4? Also to go even further, what would the chances be after these next two albums are done for a "Music of Star Trek" CD set going back and hitting episodes that were missed for all of the series on one set?

It'd probably be again D1 McCarthy, D2 Chattaway, D3 Others. The only reason DS9 had a 4th was because of the Lost Album which they had to go out of their way to find a way to add it... the original plan was to do 3 discs like the TNG set.

On that note, do we know that Season 4 was *entirely* synthesized? I know certain episodes contained orchestra, and judging from the videos I've seen of the These Are The Voyages sessions combined with the final recording, I'd say it's a stripped down orchestra augmented (haha, Enterprise joke) with synth to make the orchestra sound bigger.

In any case, it was a sad day in episodic TV when budget cuts forced them to cut the orchestra to a Star Trek series.
