The East Coast composer Gerald Fried has died in Connecticut, aged 88.

He started working on NBC’s Star Trek in mid-first season and made an indelible mark on the second-season opener, ‘Amok Time.’

He had previously scored Stanley Kubrick’s first four films: Fear and Desire (1953), Killer’s Kiss (1955), The Killing (1956) and Paths of Glory (1957).

Fried started out in 1948 as a woodwind player in the Dallas Symphony.
