This Score Cue Snapshot features three cues composed by Michael Giacchino, in his fourth collaboration with J.J. Abrams, which included 'Star Trek' (2009). This score actually includes the original 'Star Trek' theme by Alexander Courage. Our favorite release is the 2014 expanded soundtrack album, which had a limited run of 6,000 copies. The cues themselves have been perfectly timed and edited to fit within the actual film.
Interestingly, this is the highest-grossing entry in the Star Trek franchise, and it was nominated for Best Visual Effects at the 86th Academy Awards. Enjoy it!
