After a successful score to Star Trek: First Contact, Jerry Goldsmith returns once again scoring his fourth Star Trek film, Star Trek: Insurrection, which is just as good as First Contact. "Ba'ku Village" opens with Alexander Courage's classic Star Trek fanfare, which segues into Goldsmith's new theme for the film which is a soft melody for strings, harps, and flutes. This theme occurs again in full form in "Children's Story", "The Healing Process", "New Sight", and the grand finale "End Credits". Goldsmith's action music, which is some of the best action music present in film scoring today is also featured. "Not Functioning" is a rip roaring action cue which features punctuating blasts of brass, dynamic strings, and electronic effects that has become a Goldsmith standard in Star Trek. Other great action cues are found in "The Drones Attack", "Riker Maneuver", and "No Threat" which move the score along in a driving fashion. As usual, Goldsmith puts all of the melodies together in "End Credits" to leave you with a positive feeling. A great score overall and one that is worthy of many more sequels.
