In "Ballad of the Wind Fish - Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses" at 3:47 we randomly hear the main theme from Star Trek for just a short moment. Why? Why is there a Star Trek reference in the Zelda symphony? Has anyone involved in the Zelda Symphony commented on this decision or the reasons behind it?
Apparently this is an Easter egg.
@ChadSeiter are the four Star Trek notes at 3:47 in Ballad of the Wind Fish (https://t.co/gtANbSIIhj) an Easter egg?— Jack B Nimble March 7, 2016
HAHA yes! Good catch - yes it was exactly that, an easter egg to my Star Trek game score. You are the first person to notice!— Chad Seiter (@ChadSeiter) March 7, 2016
According to the show info:
"The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses" is the first ever video game themed concert to feature a complete 4-movement symphony, arranged by Zelda Symphony music director Chad Seiter (Star Trek, LOST and Fringe), showcasing the enduring and ever-adored work of Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondo and his dedicated music team.
