January 2003 When I first sampled the series, quite literally a millennium ago (!), I didn't have a lot of material to work with. In 2002 I happened to listen to the old .wav files I used to host here on a five-speaker system. They made me cringe. They hurt my ears. So as part of an ongoing revamp, I'm happy to say that the new mp3s which are available above will not cause your auditory canal to beg for mercy!
As part of this renewal, you'll also find more clips linked to from other sections of the site - the Characters section and the Episode Guide being the prime examples. In fact, every episode has at least one sound clip to bring back memories of the show. So not every clip is listed above by any means - you'll need to hunt around to find them all!
This is also a good time to point out, once more, that Brian May is not responsible for Star Fleet's theme and incidental music. He only covered it in his Star Fleet Project album - you can read more about this here. You can get hold of the files all over the place - links on this Brian May site, for example. It was actually Paul Bliss who was responsible for all of Star Fleet's distinctive music. Unfortunately during the series there tends to be dialogue over the top of it, but I've included a few short clips of frequently used themes here to give you an idea as well as Bliss' opening and closing themes.
