Star Trek: Discovery Opening Title Sequence Released Ahead of Premiere


26 September, 2017

James Frain as Sarek in 'Star Trek Discovery'.

The following contains spoilers about the premiere of "Star Trek: Discovery".

In other words, they hope that Discovery will keep the Star Trek TV brand living long and prospering. What would a Star Trek series be without great make-up? But instead of a "boldly go where no one has gone before" voiceover, we simply hear music that sounds similar to the opening, accompanied by unique graphics that show the ship, phasers, Vulcan hands, other ships in the universe, and more.

It successfully transforms Trek for its new era.

DISCOVERY airing Sundays on CTV and Space and available on CraveTV.

Leading up to the oft-delayed Discovery, much of the conversation focused around the departure of showrunner Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies), following both his commitments to American Gods and disagreements with CBS over the direction of Discovery.

It's unclear for now how the "Star Trek" bump translated to actual subscriber numbers, as the network didn't release any updated figures.

Refugees From Burundi Killed in Congo, Activists Say
The UN envoy called for a swift investigation and urged Congo's security forces to use force as a last resort. The crisis in Burundi has created over 400 000 refugees and left an estimated 700 opposition supporters dead.

With Irma, Harvey long gone, gas prices dropping in York, Lancaster, Chester
Alaska, California, Hawaii, Montana and Utah saw average prices rise slightly, but should see relief in the weeks ahead. Energy Department, six Gulf Coast refineries are operating at reduced rates, which is one more refinery than last week.

'Rustiness' cost England against Windies, says Morgan
Hales's exit was the start of a slump that saw England lose three wickets for four runs as 64 for one soon became 68 for four. Brathwaite didn't not feature in the preceding Test series , which England claimed 2-1 after winning the 3rd Test at Lord's.

Here, though, Discovery takes that vision and realises it properly for the first time. A few plot points and character arcs don't quite track, and some aspects of the show haven't gelled yet.

A Vulture review deemed the start of the series "overstuffed, corny and stirring" and "stands tall alongside the best-regarded incarnations of the franchise even as it raids elements from all of them". The new Klingons, like the Federation, look elegant as well as fearsome.

But relatively speaking, these are Tribbles - er, I mean, quibbles. His biologically incubated sensitivity to the approach of death makes him the closest thing Discovery has to a poster child, or poster creature. Burnham's early life and education are glimpsed in flashbacks: her first meeting with Georgiou is a chilly one, to say the least, thanks in no small part to the logical and emotionless personality she has developed. The capable cast around Martin-Green - which includes Doug Jones, Isaacs, Anthony Rapp and Mary Wisemen - all make fine first impressions. It stars Sonequa Martin-Green as Commander Michael Burnham, a human raised by Vulcans who follows a tumultuous career path within the United Federation of Planets' Starfleet as a war with the Klingons looms.

The two most senior officers on the ship are women and women of colour at that.

But it's the moral murk that Burnham must wade through that gives "Discovery" its tantalizing possibilities.

More importantly, it also calls back to the female First Officer known only as Number One (above) played by Majel Barrett in the very first Star Trek pilot The Cage, before her character was cut from the approved show (only Leonard Nimoy's Spock was carried over from the pilot).
