# 1 Music in Games Poll!
06-07-2010, 06:37 PM
Hey All,

One of our community members is doing their graduate thesis on music in video games, and asked us if we could run a poll as part of their research.

Below you'll find the poll - keep in mind that this is for academic research only, and is totally separate from the development of the game.

Thanks!

Uhh, the poll page refreshes back to a blank form of itself when you hit submit. Might wanna reroute to the homepage or something to avoid dupes.

Thats cool and all, but why host the poll on the official website if it is not affiliated with STO in any way? Just curious. Will you guys host other people's polls as well, or only this specific community member? Look forward to your answer.

Personally, I think STO could do with a couple music pieces from the JJ film/TNG/DS9 and maybe voyager...would add to the Star Trek feel alot...but I see this poll as pointless if its not STO affiliated.

I think there is some legal reason that their not able to use things from the new JJ movie. But if they were, I would love to hear this song in game:

Music is very important to Trek. And the best and only music I like in STO is when you enter Sirius Sector and the Star Trek theme plays.


I always wished when you entered Earth's Orbit, the Main Title Theme from Generations played (Track 2 of the CD).

(The Particular Theme Starts at 1:40, with the Climax at 2:22. This is the theme I love playing when I'm about to depart or arriving).
  • Romulan Space (The nonfighting parts) could use the Nemesis Romulus Theme.
  • Omega Fleet could use the First Contact touch.
  • Exploration can use more of a "Exploration" feeling to it than "oh your about to fight".
  • Klingons need their own theme. Especially in and around Qo'Nos and during Exploration missions.

Filled it out and posted a link with clarification in my fleet forums.

Hope this helps your guy some with his research. ^_^

The Klingon theme from the Motion Picture would be good.

not realy hard questions.

It realy depends on the Game how important Music is.


For example:

Racing Games
- super important that there is some great fast Heavy Metal tunes or Hip Hop beats (whichever way you tick that is)

Star Wars...
- ever tried playing a Star Wars games with music off? SOOOOO boring without the imperial march.


Star Trek Online
- epic Soundtrack, but this one guy who goes "waa haaaa ha hahaaa".... soooo super annoying i hust had to turn it off and get some Star Trek OST from random movies and put those into Winamp

for example...
watch 30 seconds of this one:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU5Nbcp-H6c
no sound = boring, but ok

then take this sho for a few seconds:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR5anXUHgoM
approaching Borg cube, Borg theme from First Contact = EPIC... it isn't even happening anything at the start but it is allready sucking you in (and yes that was my completly shuffled Winamp playlist doing it's work).

Personally, I think player music would have been a better thing to ask about. The ability to be creative within the game would invest a good number of people in it. I know the player music system in LOTRO has been a nice touch and I enjoy making music for groups to play. If that were in STO, I'd be quite pleased
