Goodnight, Harlan


Remembering Harlan Ellison's "The City on the Edge of Forever."
 
Heralded by many as the greatest episode, not only of the original Star Trek, but the whole franchise, "The City on the Edge of Forever" was written by science-fiction legend Harlan Ellison. While Star Trek fans know him best for this episode, he is well know for writing books and episodes of many other shows including The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, and many more. Harlan Ellison died at his home in Los Angeles in the morning of June 28, 2018 
In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala takes a look at the score to the episode that many fans consider to be the best episode of the original Star Trek. While this episode primarily used library cues recorded earlier in the season, composer Fred Steiner did write approximately ten minutes of music, not all of which was used. We play several tracks from the score, which is available in La La Land's 15 disc box set Star Trek: The Original Series Soundtrack Collection. Chapters
