Farewell, Jerry Goldsmith

Trek Today reported that Academy Award-winning composer Jerry Goldsmith passed away at age 75 yesterday.

Among Goldsmith's Star Trek scores are Star Trek: The Motion Picture, whose title theme he adapted for Star Trek: The Next Generation; the music for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis; and themes used most recently in the Star Trek: The Experience show Borg Invasion 4D.

He also did the music for Planet of the Apes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Total Recall, and more. I'm a huge fan of all of those films.

Too bad he didn't get a chance to re-write the theme song for Enterprise...
