Star Trek III: The Search for Spock [Original Soundtrack]by James Horner
After hitching his wagon to the Starship Enterprise with 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, composer James Horner returned to the franchise for its third film installment, expanding and refining the dark cosmic fanfares he introduced in the previous outing. At first blush Horner's melancholy themes seem to contradict the optimism so critical to the Star Trek mythos, but there's no denying his ponderous approach works well with the film's spiritual overtones. The quest to reclaim the life of the fallen Mr. Spock vaults the franchise into new emotional territory, and Horner responds with a series of profoundly personal themes that communicate the humanity at the core of this interstellar adventure. But by no means does Star Trek III: The Search for Spock fail as an action score -- themes like "Klingons" and "Bird of Prey Decloaks" rank alongside Horner's most suspenseful and intense moments.

I have begun a petition to have a complete score released for James Horner's scores to the Star Trek films The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock. I ask that you please sign the petition in the hope that GNP Crescendo will catch on and make this release a reality. The film score community has been vocal in the past in getting certain soundtracks released. Obviously, without support from the fans, they would never have been released. I hope that with enough signatures, this can become true as well. www. petitiononline.com/sthorner /petition.html Please take this petition seriously, and sign with your real name (and e-mail address if you wish). It carries meaning only if you legitimately want the score to be presented in its entirety.
