Star Trek: Discovery Main Title Sequence Blueprints the Future

It’s finally here. After 12 years off the air, the final frontier will be explored once more in Star Trek: Discovery. With the premiere a few short hours away, we have the first look at the main title sequence. And why put it off any longer? Take a look:


Unlike previous main title sequences, we do not see glamour shots of a Starship traveling past planets, through asteroid fields, and blasting off with warp drive.

Instead, the Discovery title sequence features rough sketches and blueprints, blending into planets, ships, tech, and eyes. It has a very similar feel to the opening sequence for Enterprise, only it comes with a nostalgic and moving theme song composed by Jeff Russo.

Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham, Jason Isaacs as Captain Gabriel Lorca, Anthony Rapp as Lieutenant Stamets, Doug Jones as Lieutenant Saru, and Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou.

Star Trek: Discovery debuts on CBS and CBS All Access simultaneously today, and weekly thereafter, though only on All Access.

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
