Differences between CD and OST

My only disappointments with the expanded score release is that the main title arrangement used in the original cinema and video release is replaced by the less subtle CD arrangement. My heart always sinks when I hear the CD version as opposed to the orginal.

Also, why wasn't the Inner Workings cue cut short. The music for Kirk's realisation of what Vejeur is is left off the CD. This is one of my favourite moments in the score and has a wonderful mystical quality.

Also would have liked the inclusion of the transporter malfunction cue which I always found very moving. Goldsmith could be so frustrating in his selection and editing of cues on his LP/CD releases.
