Star Trek built its sprawling universe on a spirit of exploration, diversity and optimism. Everything from the show’s original theme to the various soundtracks over the years express these themes. In the playlist below, curated by Spotify user Trent Stafford, you’ll find a collection of soundtracks from the movies, television series and even some orchestral performances of Star Trek’s iconic music.

Welcome to our Featured Playlist series. Each week, we’ll share a new themed playlist, embedded for your convenience! You can copy the track list to your service of choice, or listen right here. Have a sweet playlist of your own? Share it with us in the comments below!
