A Musical Journey to the Sadder Side of Trek.
The Star Trek franchise is filled with epic heroes who overcome conflict and battles—even when the odds are stacked against them. It is a universe filled with hope and optimism in which humanity can achieve anything. Every once in a while, however, they are called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice.
In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala takes a look at the music that transports us to the sadder side of Star Trek, focusing on the ways in which composers honor fallen heroes.
