Gerald Fried, Star Trek TOS Composer | Trek Untold Encore

This week it’s an encore episode from September 2020 with Gerald Fried, the last living composer who worked on the original Star Trek series. At 92, Mr. Fried is just as sharp and has a lifetime of great stories; and came out of retirement to make the score for the sci-fi parody film “Unbelievable!!!!!”.

Gerald composed five pieces for Star Trek for the episodes “Cat’s Paw,” “Shore Leave,” Friday’s Child,” “The Paradise Syndrome,” and the unforgettable and often-referenced “Amok Time” – yes, he made THAT song! His resume includes around 200 films & shows, and we discuss a few of these in addition to Trek, including scoring Stanley Kubrick’s early films, Gilligan’s Island, Roots, and more.
