Buy it... if you are among the minority of devoted "Star Trek" fanatics who managed to appreciate the use of a pop song over the opening credits and Dennis McCarthy's extremely tired orchestral formulas thereafter.

Avoid it... if you seek the best music from the show on this 2002 album, a product that was released before the most ambitious material for "Enterprise" had been written.

McCarthy
McCarthy
Star Trek: Enterprise: (Dennis McCarthy) While changing its direction in 2001, the "Star Trek" franchise still had hopes of running strong, maintaining the momentum that its three television series and four feature films of the 1990's had carried. The last of the 24th Century shows, "Star Trek: Voyager," ended just in time for Paramount to take the series back into the past for a total rebooting of the concept with new faces and sounds. Some fans of the seemingly ageless franchise, despite a looming feature film that was a year late in production (Star Trek: Nemesis), lost interest in the subject when "Enterprise" was given the reigns in late 2001. With only the one show sustaining the franchise in the absence of a strong film series at the time, however, "Enterprise" (which attempted to drop "Star Trek" from its title for no good apparent reason) was all there existed for fans of Gene Roddenberry's concepts. The show initially garnered critical success, with reasonable fan response as well, though "Enterprise" became the first "Star Trek" series since the 1960's original to be prematurely cancelled before the standard seven-year run of its peers. Like the other shows, though, an album of the pilot music for the 2001 series was released right away, taking advantage of one of the more controversial aspects of the production. The legacy of the music of "Star Trek" understandably caused a demanding standard of quality for that music, even in the television shows. While Jerry Goldsmith's Emmy Award-winning theme for "Voyager" remained popular long after the end of the show, the music for "Enterprise" did not enjoy the same level of acclaim at any time in its shortened run. Much news was generated by the decision of "Enterprise"'s producers to attract a more pop-oriented audience for the show by dumping the usual orchestral title theme. Despite those producers' continuous attempts to explain their reasons for the use of the pop song in a traditionally orchestral setting, a flight from the norm that underscores a larger reason for irritation with score collectors in general since the mid-1990's, many hardcore fans of the series immediately rejected the song.
