Goldsmith later worked on several famous movies such as The Omen, Poltergeist I and II, Alien, Chinatown (for which he wrote a particularly apt and haunting theme), Gremlins, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Supergirl, First Blood, Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Hoosiers, The Wind and the Lion, and many others.
Director Scott had commissioned Goldsmith to write and record an orchestral score for the movie, but was initially heard only in European theatres, while deleted for the domestic release due to studio politics (it has since been restored for DVD release).
Goldsmith is often remembered for composing the scores for five Star Trek films — Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek: First Contact (with son Joel), Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek: Nemesis — and the title theme for the Star Trek: Voyager television series.
