Music

By December 2020, Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard composer Jeff Russo had spoken with Kurtzman about Strange New Worlds, discussing how it “should be addressed musically,” but it was unclear whether Russo would be part in the spin-score. off’s In February 2022, it was reported that Russo composed the series’ main titles music, with Nami Melumad composing the remaining of the score. Melumad, who had earlier composed music for Star Trek: Prodigy as well as an episode of Star Trek: Short Treks, had been composing her music for several months at Warner Bros. Studios in California’s Eastwood Scoring Stage when the announcement was made. For Season 1, a smaller orchestra has been used than Russo used for Discovery and Picard. The orchestra was recorded as a whole while yet adhering to COVID-19 safety guidelines. Melumad handled each episode of the series as if it were a feature film, which allowed him to create recurrent patterns and integrate references to previous Star Trek music.
