Star Trek Remix Week 05: Blitzkrieg

Earlier this year, Jon demonstrated the power of adding a simple laugh track to a video.

The music in a show is just as critical and is often overlooked . A good sound track transports the viewer and makes them forget they are watching the show unfold in a rectangle in their living room. The music also sets the mood.

Here are two clips of Star Trek battles. The first is a compilation of combat scenes; the second is the final major battle from Deep Space 9. The music in Blitzkrieg is Requiem for a Dream from the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers trailer. The must in What You Leave Behind is also from the Lord of the Rings.

The battles have several scenes in common, but the slight change in music changes the effect significantly.

Now they both look like Battlestar Galactica.
