Ilia’s Theme Arrangement for Solo Acoustic Guitar / by Trek fm

One of the most memorable musical moments in Star Trek history is “Ilia’s Theme” from The Motion Picture. This haunting overture welcomed Star Trek to the big screen and remains one of the franchise’s most recognizable melodies.

Tiniandrea, a guitarist from Italy, has put together his own arrangement of “Ilia’s Theme” and posted a video performance to YouTube. It’s a beautiful version and once again highlights how enduring this piece is—just like the original crew themselves.
