It was surreal. During the countdown, as the Klingons were being blown up, the theater went wild...
...cut to the exterior shot, and the gravity of what's going on sunk in, and the theater went dead silent. It couldn't have been quieter if no one was in there. There would be no reprieve this time... no last second miracle from Scotty... this time, she was really gonna die... the character that became the symbol for all of what's good in humanity was finally meeting her end. Yet, as with her life, she died saving her crew... which didn't make it less painful (though it did give it meaning).
It (the TOS era through the movies) was an interesting time growing up, watching as humanity started growing, with reflections in the TOS episodes of where we were at the time, and where we could be. The crew acted those parts, while Enterprise acted the part of the human spirit and indomitable will... no matter what happened, no matter the odds or her design limitations, we always knew she'd fight on and survive with that tenacity of spirit humanity has when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds...
...until that movie. :-/
We still have a lot of growing up to do... and the symbol Enterprise was, and what she stood for, hopefully will continue to live on in our hearts and souls.
I wish someone would take up working on episodes between TMP and TWOK. I'd do it myself if I had the disposable income needed to support a studio, volunteer film crew, actors, etc. Alas, I am not that person.

Only a portion of it is used (and then it is faded out into the background and then totally faded out).
During the years, additional music has been used along with it (as an intro or outro to the sounder).
Here's four variants of the 1010 WINS sounders where you can hear such mixed into "Construction Site". Some of that additional music is what Foster Kent is known for composing.

I know what you mean though.. some things in those movies were retarded. Such as Kirk bumping into old Spock and Scotty on a vulcan moon. Or the beaming from Earth to Kronos that made starships obsolete.. dear oh dear.
During what “downtime” I have from my regular work, and my rather expensive “hobby” (Star Trek Phase 2), I enjoy hanging out with my friends, reading, watching movies, the outdoors, cooking for friends and loved ones, video games, the beach, or simply vegging out.
