* "The Enterprise," the stunning cue that plays during the "Kirk looks at the ''Enterprise'' for a thousand years" scene, is a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for both Jerry Goldsmith and the orchestra itself--scoring sessions generally require multiple performances of a track, but they nailed it on '''the first take'''. This came after the music was rewritten, as when Goldsmith started the score, they did not yet have a definitive title theme. The original piece had been written with a nautical theme, and would not be completely out of place in a ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' film, but it didn't feel like ''Star Trek''. That said, once they had their theme, they nailed it.

* The La-La Land three-disc expansion is a must, as not only does it provide the ''complete'' score for the first time, it's chock full of alternate takes, early versions of several tracks (before Goldsmith came up with a proper theme), a few bonus outtakes, and the original soundtrack album tracks. Throw in a funky disco pop version of the main theme and "A Star Beyond Time", a version of Ilia's Theme with lyrics sung by Shaun Cassidy.

* In fact, quite a few of the musical cues in this film would go on to become ''Star Trek'' staples. The "Klingon Battle Theme" from the start would go on to become ''the'' primary Klingon theme (and Worf's {{leitmotif}}), several of the major musical cues would be referenced again and again in later works... and oh yeah, the main theme to the movie became the theme song for ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', was used as the closing theme for some of the TNG movies, and was also recycled as the opening theme for ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier''.
