Star Trek: Discovery is hitting our small screens tonight and Paramount and CBS have released the main title sequence ahead of the Sunday night premiere.
The opening sequence shows off rough designs of the Discovery, blades and phaser weapons THAT take form in the opening spot along with black smoke that turns into the Vulcan hand salute. The sequence is paired with Jeff Russo’s opening theme music for the new Star Trek series, which uses parts of Alexander Courage’s original theme from 1966.

Releasing Star Trek: Discovery‘s opening credits is in line with CBS’ marketing strategy which has been dropping teasers that not only showcased the show but teased the titles of the first four episodes. You can be sure there is still plenty more to be revealed in the weeks ahead.
The first two episodes of tonight’s Star Trek: Discovery premiere event stretches over two hours with “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle Of The Binary Star”, which will both air on CBS and then be available to stream on CBS’ All Access, which will be home to Star Trek: Discovery going forward.
It’s been 51 years since Star Trek first came into the world, changing pop culture forever.

We here at GEEK are looking forward to the new show (even if it was marred by certain creative problems) so make sure you check back for our review on the first two episodes and any series’ updates during Discovery‘s first season.
