Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Appreciation Giveaway

For the first week of May we’re appreciating all of the Star Trek movies featuring the original cast! We’ve got great pieces from Tor.com bloggers, our Trek recappers, and some very special guests, but that’s not all.

Every Star Trek movie appreciation this week will have an accompanying giveaway specific to that movie. A bit of history, or something tongue-in-cheek, or something random...whatever feels right.

For today’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home coverage we’re giving away...whale songs! Just play this CD next time your ancestors foolishly destroy an entire species that communicate with very angry alien brethren. Who’s the hero now? You are! Thanks to whale songs.

The Official Rules: To enter, post a comment in this post. Duplicate comments won’t be counted. One winner will be randomly selected by 4 PM EST on Thursday, May 5th. Please check your email in the 24 hours after the giveaway has concluded; if we don’t hear back from a winner within 24 hours of being contacted, another winner will be chosen.

I remember a whale song LP I got for Xmas when I was about 15, drove my sister's cats nuts!

Yes... "Don't Kill the Whale" ... way ahead of its time. By a few years at least.

This is my favorite ST movie, my sons gave me the VCR tape years ago for Christmas. Now I don't even have a VCR player that works!

Ooooh, whale songs...

I have a recording of Alan Hovhaness' "And God Created Great Whales, for orchestra & taped whale sounds, Op. 229/1", which I love. (Years ago, I was at a Seattle Symphony concert featuring that, with Hovhaness in the audience. Just... wow.)

Great gift - but how is a Humpback whale going to listen to it?
I know, all I need is a water proof CD player. However I'm not sure if headphones come in XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL.
