The orchestral re-recording of the show’s theme music was re-recorded with modern, digital age recording techniques and better microphones using the original notes from the old archives. Greg Smith (Conductor) was thrilled with the new Star Trek recording.
"We're being very truthful and faithful to the original notes because its sacred hollowed ground, this theme."
Experience the Star Trek Buzz! Trekkies will be beaming in from all over the galaxy, to view this new historic 30-minute in-theatre exclusive featurette. Woo Hoo! I'm excited. Why? because I'm a trekkie too!
“Star Trek” debuted on Sept. 8, 1966 on NBC in the U.S., telling the story of the crew of the starship Enterprise and its five-year mission, “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk and Leonard Nimoy as Spock starred in the series which addressed issues of the 1960s including war and peace, imperialism, class warfare, racism, human rights, sexism and feminism.
After just three seasons, the show was cancelled and the last episode aired on June 3, 1969, but it became popular in reruns and a cult following developed. The “Star Trek” franchise went on to include the TV series “Star Trek: Next Generation” (1987-1994), “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” (1993-1999), “Star Trek: Voyager” (1995-2001), “Star Trek: Enterprise” (2001-2005), and Star Trek: “The Animated Series” (1973-1974) as well as 10 feature films.
