Doug's Tech Talk
For those that missed spectacular limited 2-CD presentation from La-La Land label, Intrada brings powerhouse Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack back as per desire of licensor to see title remain available in ongoing STAR TREK soundtrack series. William Shatner stars, directs fifth feature installment of legendary series, employs familiar original cast in tale of hostages, quest for meaning in life, other ambitious plot ideas. Goldsmith anchors with famed Enterprise theme but ingeniously focuses on incredibly flexible four-note triad-ish motif that plays in all manner of guise: aggressively bowed in low cellos, tentatively played by upper strings, crisply punched by trumpets, elongated by triumphant French horns, so forth. Rich major-key theme for Kirk ("A Busy Man") adds warmth while pulsating action cues ("Open The Gates", "Raid On Paradise", "Let's Get Out Of Here") excite! Score also makes terrific use of dynamic theme for Klingons, introduced in first feature. Array of alternates plus remastered presentation of original 1989 soundtrack album round out stunning audio treat, mastered from original digital session elements. All musical content plus liner notes by Trek authority Jeff Bond are identical to earlier 2-CD release. New packaging by Joe Sikoryak brings artwork design in keeping with other Intrada/Film Score Monthly STAR TREK releases. Jerry Goldsmith conducts.

Tech Talk From The Producer…
Recent years have seen a bonanza of Star Trek soundtrack expanded editions. However, because
different record labels were involved for the various films, the reissues have come out in an order
that Spock might find…illogical. They are simply being released as fast as the licenses and productions
can be completed.
In 2010 La-La Land Records released a long-awaited 2CD expanded edition of Star Trek V: The
Final Frontier. Their 5,000-copy limited edition sold out in months. Having this classic Goldsmith
score go from unavailable to available to barely available ($80 on eBay!) was, again, not logical.
Intrada is thus proud to present an unlimited edition of the 2CD set and, with La-La Land’s blessing,
the thoroughly researched liner notes.
Listeners may have noticed the similarities in packaging between Film Score Monthly’s CDs of
Star Trek II and III and Intrada’s Star Trek IV, VI and now V. They are all designed by our mutual art
director, Joe Sikoryak, to give these important titles visual cohesion across labels.
Composed and Conducted by Jerry Goldsmith. Recorded on March 27, 28, and April 10, 11, 14, and 15, 1989, at Record Plant Scoring, Paramount Stage M, Los Angeles, California.
