Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast

Melodic Treks is a podcast dedicated entirely to the music of Star Trek. Host Brandon-Shea Mutala explores the themes, orchestral scores, and incidental compositions that bring Star Trek episodes and films to life, as well as the composers, singers and musicians behind the sounds.

The Borg in Music.

The Borg are one of the most iconic "baddies" ever to appear on Star Trek. They have a profound effect on fans and are a long-time favorite in the franchise. As they were introduced to us on The Next Generation, it's only fitting that in this episode of Melodic Treks the dynamic trio from Earl Grey joins us to talk about the music of the Borg. Not music written by Borg composers, but rather the music created by the great Ron Jones to represent them. The music was so powerful and resonated so well with fans that its release was rushed in order to capitalize on the success of the episode. Along the way we cover "Q Who," "The Best of Both Worlds," and, of course, First Contact. So "buckle up" and enjoy the ride.
