Some of you might remember that my first video was a TV style opening theme for my main crew in STO.

I have just made my third attempt at it, and uploaded it to YouTube.

Hope you like it.

That was fantastic! Better than a lot of trailers you see in the movies.

Excuse me for a moment, my mouth is on the floor somewhere...

That theme, was that original music?

Excellent job! I really liked the transitions between the scenes. I'm looking for an editor and director for Star Trek: Majestic if you are interested.

Now that's really impressive. Not only this opening - I've also checked your other videos and they're quite something. The editing is great and I love the idea of a "summary" clip show of a particular STO series with your own crew. It actually feels trek and not yet another busty bikini-wearing orion girl army running around.

Although I must say, the opening does have a Babylon 5 vibe coming from it. (which is a good thing, as it was an awesome show)


Looking forward to seeing more in the future. And quite frankly I think this video should be featured on the STO main page, as an example of creativity coming from STO community.

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement. I really appreciate it.

It's by Two Steps from Hell, who did the trailer music for the first JJ Trek movie (that was called Freedom Fighters from their album Invincible). This piece was called Love and Loss from their album Archangel. You will find their music for sale on iTunes and Amazon (which is where I got it from). I tend to use a lot of their music because it's just so awesome, and they really are at the top of the game in the 'epic classical' genre of music.

Absolutely. It's the season 4 opening of Babylon 5 which has the different voices at the beginning and the split screens. I have always liked that seasons opening theme and really wanted to see that style of opening with my Star Trek crew. I stopped short of adding the line "the year is 2409" though.
