Star Trek: Insurrection – Music from the Motion Picture Expanded Collector’s Edition [CD]


Jerry Goldsmith said: “I think the toughest part about any film, whether it’s a Star Trek or anything else, is just coming up with a fresh approach. When you do a sequel, it’s always harder because it’s too easy to fall back on what you’ve done before.”

Insurrection offered the composer a distinctive mix of action, conceptual science fiction and romance. “I think this film is a more romantic film than any of the others have been. I would say there’s more action in this than there was in First Contact, but the subplots include a very lovely romantic story. So, that makes it a little different for me. The whole thing is a much more melodic, romantic approach, on a very big scale. It’s almost operatic.”
