Trek Tracks

by Jim Allen  |  October 20, 2013

Welcome to the real final frontier. For decades, Star Trek has been not just a subculture but a culture, to the point where it can sometimes be tough to remember that it all began with a not terribly successful TV show. The Trek world long ago branched out into just about every arm of the media, and with the arrival of Ponder the Mystery, a new album from William Shatner that finds the Captain teaming with everyone from Rick Wakeman to Vince Gill, it's high time for a playlist that boldly goes where tons of Trekkies have gone before. These tracks tackle all things Trek: recordings by Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and Patrick Stewart; soundtrack themes from the various series and films; and even tunes about Trek, from Spizzenergi's post-punk classic ["Where's Captain Kirk?"] to Stanley Clarke's jazz fusion jam "Vulcan Princess." Stick that in your starlog.
