Hey guys - I apologize if this is the wrong area of the board to share this information, since I haven't logged in here in several months... some of you may know I've drifted away from the VGM scene and moved on to film music. Anyway, without further ado:

A film music record label named Film Score Monthly / Screen Archives will be releasing a 14 CD boxset of Star Trek music within, I believe, sometime in the next month or so. Or fairly quickly, from what I've heard. This boxset is centered mostly around Ron Jones' music for the Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series.

However, Disc 14 of this boxset will feature Ron Jones' music for two Interplay PC video games that he wrote music for in the 1990s: Starfleet Academy (1997) and Starfleet Command (1999).

Again, this boxset has not yet been released, but it will be made available for ordering soon. It is a limited edition pressing of 5000 copies, in negotiation with Paramount (as far as I know), and the boxset is priced at $149.95.

Here's a blog posting made by album producer Lukas Kendall about this set:

Here's the important bits:

Then probably in the first week or two of September—we hope—is FSM Box 05. This is the long-rumored Ron Jones box set of Star Trek: The Next Generation music. 14 discs, $149.95, limited to 5000 copies—40 complete episode scores, plus some previously unreleased "Best of Both Worlds" cues and Ron's two Interplay computer game scores. All in immaculate stereo. The packaging is in the style of the Rózsa box: the booklet has an introductory essay and track listings (and lots of ST:TNG art), with comprehensive liner notes to be posted online. Did you guys know this was my dream project? I fantasized about putting this together ever since I fell in love with the scores twenty years ago. In fact it was twenty years ago almost exactly that "The Best of Both Worlds" aired.

If you want to place an order—you can't. Not yet. But you can get on the Screen Archives mailing list if you are not already and be notified the moment they are available.

And here are the links to keep an eye on, for the boxset's release:

That's all I have to say, for now. I may post back here when the box is released... if I can remember to.

Guess how I got the information to add.

Anyway thanks for explaining this entry. Obviously it seems a bit odd at first, since it's mostly a collection of television music, but since Starfleet Academy and Starfleet Command are both included here, it's definetely worth an entry here. The music is great anyway.

Edit: I just noticed this thread was here before I added the album... so, nevermind. xD

A couple of other notes as well:

If you can't buy from Screen Archives, there's alternatives such as Intrada and MovieMusic:

http://moviemusic.com/soundtrack/startrek-tng-ronjones


Also, when the set was first announced for pre-order yesterday, Screen Archives was also selling copies of the box that were autographed by Ron Jones... there were only 100 of those, however, and they came and went in about 2 hours.

Hopefully I can save up the cash to buy this set eventually, though I'm not bummed about missing an autograph (I don't like having my CD artwork damaged with ink scribbles ).
