Star Trek – TMP Music Score

I just came across an interesting post on the TrekMovie.com web site about a 175-page thesis written in 1986 by Cameron N. Patrick, analyzing Jerry Goldsmith’s musical score for Star Trek – The Motion Picture.  Cameron Patrick is a composer, orchestrator, and violinist.  He discusses the history of the score, the instrumentation, themes, cues, and more.  Film Score Monthly has published a downloadable copy of it on their web site, and TrekMovie.com also has a link for downloading a copy.  See the links below.  Check it out!
