Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast (Events)
41: Supreme Sounds

Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage.

In the summer of 2015, a series of concerts was announced that would celebrate Star Trek's 50th anniversary in a very special way. With the baton first falling on January 17 in West Palm Beach Florida, Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage is a performance that will visiting 100 cities across North American in 2016. Comprising over 100 minutes of music from the television series and films—and even some from the video game Star Trek: Starfleet Academy—this musical endeavor sets the sounds of the future against footage beamed in high definition to a 40-foot wide screen.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Richard Marquez and Zach Moore to discuss the event, including the venues, stage design, cosplay, and presentation. Also presented is a brief interview with the tour's system engineer, Chris Dietrich, and conductor Nicholas Buc.
