I dunno, despite the lack of a dedicated Theme for the Klingons I do find Soran's four-note motif quite effective as a musical calling card. And its kinda amusing how McCarthy used it exactly the same way Horner usually used *his* four-note-motif. wink

As a sitenote regarding the Klingons, in 'Soran Kidnaps Geordi' McCarthy briefly employs an Electric Guitar alongside the Orchestral Ensemble (when the Bird of Prey shows up). He did that a couple of times too in DS9 as well when Klingons were involved, for example in "Shattered Mirror":
Wish he would have used it more in "Generations", one of the very few real gripes I have with the Score.

Overall, of the thirteen ST-Movie-Scores, "The Voyage Home" is the only one I'd give less than four stars (if I were to use Southalls/CCs rating system) and even that one has weirdly grown on me. It is the weakest of the lot, but entirely appropiate for THAT particular movie. And 'Home Again' is kind of an highlight. smile
