According to Variety director Joe Dante was flabbergasted to learn that Goldsmith didn’t already have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s easy to see why you’d expect Goldsmith to have a star on the Walk of Fame already. Goldsmith created the music for five Star Trek films as well as Academy Award winner for best picture Patton.
Goldsmith’s connections with Star Trek went past film and into television as well. Goldsmith created the beautiful themes for both Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager. The themes Goldsmith created for Star Trek: The Motion Picture would of course also return in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Jerry Goldsmith’s contributions to Hollywood music and Star Trek simply can’t be overstated. The fact that Goldsmith only just got a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a tragedy in itself. We are so glad that this great director is finally getting his due. There’s only one way to celebrate this momentous occasion… and that’s with blood wine and song. The song in this being the Klingon Battle music that Goldsmith created for Star Trek: The Motion Picture and that would help define who the Klingons were from that point on.
