Star Trek III: The Search For Spock continued the story of the Genesis planet and revealed the ultimate fate of Spock, who nobly sacrificed himself to save his crew mates at the end of the last film. One great success from the previous film was its score, composed by James Horner. When Leonard Nimoy came on board to helm the film, he wanted to go a different direction, utilizing his friend Leonard Rosenman, but the studio won the day, and Honorer returned, and, according to some, surpassed his previous Trek accomplishment.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Zach Moore of Standard Orbit to talk about his five favorite tracks from the score to Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, composed by James Horner. We also discuss why this is his favorite Trek film, and, as always, we have a few tangents along the way.
