Nomion's 3rd Sonata is a work of classical Colonial music composed by Stu Nomion. It's comprised of three movements: Pascaglia, Allegro and Variations.

Daniel Graystone occasionally played it on the piano in his lab (Rebirth). It was also played by used by Dreilide Thrace as a "touch stone" for when he encountered writer's block (Someone to Watch Over Me).


  • The music is in fact from the opening dialogue of the original series ("There are some who believe life here, began out there...").
  • Original series music has appeared before, in the form of the Colonial Anthem.
  • According to Bear McCreary, Stu Nomion is the in-universe representation of Stu Phillips, the Original Series's composer[1].
