Buy it... if you have awaited Michael Giacchino's addition of the sadly missing romantic element into his "Star Trek" scores, joined in this third entry by a few nostalgic glances backward to the scores of Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner.

Avoid it... if you require strong new thematic identities in your "Star Trek" scores, the majority of new ideas by Giacchino for this score a mixture of elusive, unnecessary, derivative, and ineffective.

Giacchino
Giacchino
Star Trek Beyond: (Michael Giacchino) Seemingly stuck perpetually in its past, the "Star Trek" universe of film and television strives to re-explore the characters and concepts of its perceived heyday. The rebooted film franchise continues its journey through a parallel universe with 2016's Star Trek Beyond, the thirteenth entry and a final farewell to the last vestiges of the actual "original" Enterprise crew. By the talent of director and producer J.J. Abrams, these rebooted "Star Trek" films have been a critical and popular success, though his ceding of the director's chair to action junkie Justin Lin for Star Trek Beyond, along with poor release timing, were likely causes for this third film in the Chris Pine generation of Captain Kirk to lose money worldwide. Borrowed plotline elements from the prior generations' films abound in Star Trek Beyond, which strands the Enterprise crew on a hostile planet after the destruction of their ship, all the while an unlikely, physically-altered villain launches an attack against the Federation. The deaths of actors Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin (there's sick irony in the idea that the navigator Chekov would be crushed by his own car due to a Jeep Grand Cherokee gearshift mishap, leading to an obligatory wrongful death lawsuit) put a particularly sour taste into the equation with Star Trek Beyond, though Nimoy and his original crewmates are afforded their proper remembrance. Perhaps the beauty of parallel universes can solve the Chekov problem as well in future films, though Abrams professed his inclination to kill off the character altogether. Expectedly returning to the franchise is composer Michael Giacchino, whose music for the prior two, rebooted "Star Trek" films was accomplished and acclaimed even if it was unnecessarily detached from the prior identities of the film franchise. The composer's approach to Star Trek Beyond isn't surprising on any level, the same core thematic elements and stylistic mannerisms from the prior two entries returning predictably.
