A look at Discovery's theme and opening title sequence

6/6Andoria

Last night's first hour of Discovery not only had to not only kick off a whole new Star Trek series, it also had to convince viewers to buy into CBS All Access.

In a recent interview, Discovery co-creator Alex Kurtzman said that a Season 2 will take a while, but that there's very good reason for that.

Episodes one and two of Star Trek: Discovery went live on the service on September 24th.

Star Trek: Discovery debuted to positive reviews.

Unlike the previous generations of Star Trek, however, only the first episode of Discovery will be available for free.

The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green as a promising first officer of the United Federation of Planets raised by Vulcans. "Just as importantly, for everything questionable about the design, it still feels like 'Trek.'" He also said, "For the first time in ages, I'm looking forward to watching more new 'Star Trek.' It's a good feeling". It apparently took three to four months to produce one episode of the show from start to finish. Fans can also watch "After Trek", the companion after-show of "Star Trek: Discovery" hosted by Matt Mira.

More than a dozen states from ME to California have sued over the administration's decision to phase out the program, alleging similar constitutional violations.

Star Trek: Discovery follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

The second one picks up as T'Kuvma convinces most of the Klingon leaders that he could lead them to victory. Sure, there are nits to be picked, the most obvious being that, aesthetically and technologically, everything in Discovery is somehow more advanced than anything in Star Trek: Voyager, despite taking place 115 years prior.

Sucked unceremoniously into the vacuum of space by a hull breach, Connors is the latest in a long tradition of Star Trek deaths. It doesn't help matters that the Shenzhou looks way more high-tech than anything on the original series or TNG, and that the Starfleet uniforms on the show barely resemble those of the era that it's supposedly just 10 years behind. As a lifelong fan drawn to the Star Trek franchise for its diverse casts, I am thrilled to see-as the lead-a woman of color with a mysterious backstory (how is she related to Spock?), and a compelling premise (mutineer-turned-savior). It moves fast and the story is gripping, and the visuals easily eclipse anything done by Star Trek on TV before.

Star Trek: Discovery has a lovely opening sequence, but it's very different from what you might have expected.

"I tried to avoid really learning too much about it before going in to see it, because I like to be surprised", Bormanis told SYFY WIRE last week, after attending a pre-release showing of Discovery's pilot in Hollywood last Thursday.
