Background information Edit

The horn is a favorite instrument of film composers and commonly used for presenting heroic and heralding themes. Alexander Courage used the horn for the opening fanfare call in the original Star Trek opening credits, and this horn call was later used by Jerry Goldsmith for the main theme of Star Trek: The Motion Picture that was subsequently used for Star Trek: The Next Generation. The instrument was also prominently used in the main themes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.
