Re: "Best SciFi Theme Tune"

Dr Who, Old school BSG, Knight Rider and the A-team are there for me. The A-Team is not sci-fi, but it is still really really TV music.

All of these are tied into my childhood, which probably says a lot.

It's already supposed to be in the pipeline... for 2010.

B5 related trivia - the starfury was Ron Thornton's deliberate homage to the Last Starfighter's gunstar.

Seeing the latter on screen kind of makes you feel it could easily be an EAS heavy fighter/bomber in the B5 universe.





And here's the ships most iconic defining moment - death blossom.

No way!!! Is it truly a sequel?
I love the movie to pieces.
I think it would be sweet if they redid the effects to modern standards and had the original version also on the same disc. Thus honoring the classic and it's initial achievement of introducing the world to CG MOVIE GRAPHICS. With like a disc that has the making of the original and it's impact on todays movies. But also a new modern CGI (look) version of The Last Starfighter. That would be sweet.

Re: "Best SciFi Theme Tune"

I'm not sure it's a candidate for the "best ten" list, but I do like the theme of "Galaxy Quest"! It is certainly a bit of musical parody, yet memorable on its own. I like the way it's used on two levels - as the theme of the "original" TV series and as the theme of the movie.
