I have been a Star Trek fan for almost as long as I can remember. The first Star Trek movie I ever saw was Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. I remember the film's theme sticking with me. (Especially the part with the clarinets playing the main theme while Kirk lies to Khan. The cue is Kirk's explosive reply)When I saw the motion picture, the theme bored me. It stuck with me eventually with nemisis (Insurection score was horrible by the way) when I returned to Wrath of Khan the theme hit me so emotionally. It is the best Star Trek score ever. (second only to Nemisis [motion picture of corse) or Giacchino's new star trek)
