You may be looking for the album The Best of Star Trek - The Original Film Scores, originally released as Star Trek - The Astral Symphony.

GNP Crescendo Records released two volumes of what the label considers The Best of Star Trek's orchestral score music from the franchise's television series. Unlike the many albums released featuring re-recordings of the music for the purposes of an album listening experience, the material included in these volumes are from the original soundtrack recordings, or suites of themes from particular episodes recorded by the original studio orchestras.
