The new TV series Enterprise is set at the beginning of the Star Trek Saga, 100 years before the adventures of Captain Kirk. This series is a "prequel" to the sci-fi phenomenon which began in 1966 to "boldly go where no man had gone before." The series takes place in the year 2151 and introduces us to the pioneering days of space exploration, where the possibilities offered by deep space travel are only just beginning to be realized. Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap) stars as Captain Jonathan Archer, leading his crew through a universe which portends both danger and awe. The soundtrack is being released in the US to coincide with the end of the top-rated series (which premiered in the US last September with an exceptional audience of 12.5 million viewers), and will be available across the world in 2002. Star tenor Russell Watson, sings the theme song to the series, "Where My Heart Will Take Me," written by Diane Warren. In addition to the full-length album version of this track, the soundtrack also features the shorter TV version as a bonus track, as well as an interview and video clip of him performing the track. This enhanced CD also contains some exclusive features for Star Trek fans including a screen saver and interviews with the cast and crew.

Muze PNote Editor: James Cruz.
Muze PNote When the producers of the fifth Star Trek series decided to use a vocal track over the show's opening credits, controversy immediately erupted among fans. After all, Star Trek had a rich legacy of memorable instrumental themes, from the bold fanfare that opened the original series to Jerry Goldsmith's triumphant march used in Star Trek: The Next Generation (a theme originally written for Star Trek: The Motion Picture) to Dennis McCarthy's plaintive opening for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and, finally, Goldsmith's rich, intrepid theme for Star Trek: Voyager. For Enterprise, the producers broke with tradition by choosing "Faith of the Heart," penned by hitmaker Diane Warren and sung by Russell Watson, to accompany the show's opening collage depicting the history of spaceflight. It's an interesting if somewhat bewildering choice and one that continued to divide fans. Thankfully, the song plays much better on album than on television, seeming somehow easier to take while continuing to sound a bit out of place within the context of Dennis McCarthy's underscore. Two versions of the song are included on this CD, a full-length rendition which opens the album and, at the other end, the shortened version used on the show. The bulk of the album is dedicated to McCarthy's score to the pilot episode, "Broken Bow," built primarily around the pleasant, Americana-style "Archer's Theme" (originally intended for use under the main titles). The music unfolds in a style typical for later Star Trek projects, avoiding the strongly melodic (and sometimes melodramatic) strains present in the original series and presenting more of an orchestral tapestry. McCarthy creates a strong sense of mood, using some effective percussion passages to represent the villains while keeping his main focus on building textures to underplay the action on screen. While this technique is usually more effective onscreen than on disc, here it works fairly well on its own. There's nothing spectacular here, but Enterprise does make a representative and worthy addition to the Star Trek musical canon. ~ Neil Shurley
