Well here's a somewhat unexpected Star Trek music release, the Star Trek roller coaster launched this year at Movie Park Germany had brand new music recorded to enhance the ride experience, and now they've released a soundtrack so you can enjoy that new Star Trek music at home too!

Put together by IMA Score Audio Experience, who have also produced music for other attractions, the soundtrack features a mix of new recordings of classic Trek themes, plus several new themes created for the ride. Here's the cover:

If you want a further sample, check my previous report for a video on the production of the music for the ride. And you can get your own copy of the full soundtrack, on IMA Score's website.

In other news from the ride, Movie Park have also released a trailer, showing off the roller coaster experience:



The ride's official opening happened back in June, with a special appearance from Marina Sirtis (aka Counselor Troi), and some costumed Borg companions. Here she is on the attraction's bridge recreation, with local mayor Bernd Tischler, and Movie Park manager Thorsten Backhaus - Image from Ausfluge NRW, who have a good article discussing the official opening event, and impressions of the ride.


Movie Park have also released a couple of new point of view videos from the roller coaster itself, so you can ride it virtually if you can't get to Germany any time soon:
