Celebrating 40 years of the Classic Sci-Fi TV / Film franchise. Featuring all five generations together… from the iconic original to The Next Generation, through Deep Space Nine and Voyager to the most recent series, Enterprise. The music is an orchestral piece based on the flute melody from ST:TNG ‘The Inner Light’.
ANyone know if this is on iTunes?
great compilation! thumb up
nice job ,, fantastic !!!!!
I love the music.Great tribute. Thank you for sharing!
@fdfederation There will never be a DS9 movie because Avery Brooks (Sisko) said he will never do a movie, ever. (That’s kind of why they ended DS9 the way they did, with Sisko out of the picture.) I don’t think they’d do a Voyager movie, because what would it be about? The ship’s home. The crew’s most likely broken up due to rapid advancement. They could have done an “Enterprise” movie, perhaps. Regarding more Next Generation movies, the actors didn’t want to continue with them.
@tready77 The theme is on Itunes…….look up Jay Chattaway.
@fdfederation I agree. With all these people complaining about how Rick Berman or Brannon Braga or Ronald Moore “screwed things up” (which I never understood), I’d have to stay the biggest misstep in the entire history of Star Trek was the 2009 movie. I felt like it just “undid” 40 years of legacy. It would have been an amusing movie if they didn’t muck about with the timeline (and Star Trek’s history), but that’s what blew it for me.
@AdmiralMemo There will never be a DS9 movie because a lot of fans felt the series was too dark and not adherent to Gene’s vision. There will never be a VOY film because, as you mentioned, they are home and many fans feel that VOY was Trek’s downfall. An ENT series……when nobody watched the series itself? As for the TNG crew, it was NOT the actors themselves that felt it was time to pass the torch…….it was Paramount decision.
@AltaWoman I actually miss Berman. Although cryptic in his responses, he WAS the man Gene passed the torch to. The man I feel can restore Trek to its glory…..Ira Behr. Alas, Paramount does not care about the integrity of this franchise and only its box office draw. I ask this: shall we sit by and allow our franchise to succomb to mediocrity?
@Section31Captain That’s the other thing, Paramount didn’t choose to use ANY of the old creative team. They just tossed them all away. Even Roddenberry, when creating TNG, he started his core group with Star Trek veterans. Unfortunately for those of us that hate the direction Star Trek is going, there is an equal or greater number of people who absolutely loved the new movie and will pay to see a sequel. So it’s mediocrity to some, but to Paramount it’s just about money!
@Neojedigoddess Well, Enterprise can be somewhat considered an alternate timeline already, since it is following the timeline after the Borg temporal incursion in “First Contact” so history’s already a little messed up there. Then, the “Temporal Cold War” screwed things up even more. Though, with so much mucking around in history in all the different episodes of all the different series, who knows whether all the series can be reconciled into one timeline?
@AltaWoman As this music plays and I recall what Trek means to me, allow me to state the 2 greatest examples of Trekkie intervention and how I feel it relates to us being proactive: First was the intervention of fans that kept ths show on the air for a second and third season. Second was how Trekkies wrote in to the president of the United States and had the prototype space shuttle renamed Enterprise. What have we done to further the cause?
@AdmiralMemo Enterprise is NOT an alternate time line.The temporal time line according to the Borg…..I took the author of an article about the Borg time line to task on that last year. Paul Simpson, the editor got involved. I took him to school as well.
@Section31Captain Well, not even counting the new 2009 movie, I count 34 instances of time travel in Star Trek where things were not returned 100% to how they were, but were considered “close enough” so, in reality… Any or all of those incidents could be considered to have created an alternate timeline somewhere.
@Section31Captain I have no problem in writing letters or asking others to, but both examples you cited showed the powers that be that it was in their own interest to go along with the requests. The first, popularity = success, ratings and money, and the second meant a certain prestige and recognition. But I believe in this case we’d be going against the grain, unless we can convince Paramount to change horses midstream for an even better more profitable horse, they’re sticking with Abrams
@AltaWoman There are more fans that are upset with the direction the franchise is headed than you may realize. The problem is, not enough care to do anything about it. Sadly, most are content to just whine and complain. The blame for how terrible the last film was does not lie with Abrams, that distinction goes to Orci. He is the so called “Trekker” that was responsible for the script. And all of them are Star Wars fans that are trying to re-imagine Trek in that style. Disgraceful.
@AdmiralMemo Indeed they did. The best example of alternate time lines is the TNG episode “Parallels”.
It’s all good
Thank you so much for putting this together. Ab solutely brilliant. I love it! Trek rules…. at least it does for me. Love the pipe music which I think is played by Picard in a Nxt Gen. episode?
“In fascination, with the eyes of the world we stare”. GO ENDEAVOUR!
