‘Star Trek: Discovery’: CBS Unveils Title Sequence Ahead Of Premiere

Star Trek DiscoveryCBS has just unveiled a sneak peek at the opening title sequence for their new show, Star Trek: Discovery.

The new main title sequence is minimalist. It features new spaceships and new spacesuits, as well as a look at the phasers, communicators, and much more.

You can check out the video below:

While the sequence does not give any major new details away, it is exciting to see a new show that has a twist of that classic Star Trek flavor. The hint of the original theme song echoes in both the beginning and the end of the sequence.

The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca of the USS Discovery, James Frain as Spock’s father, Sarek, Doug Jones as a Starfleet Science Officer and a member of a new alien species, Saru, Anthony Rapp the astrobiologist, fungus expert, and Starfleet Science Officer, Stamets, Rekha Sharma as Commander Landry, security officer of the Starship Discovery, Terry Serpico as Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as Nambue, Chris Obi as T’Kuvma, Shazad Latif as Lieutenant Tyler, Mary Chieffo as L’Rell, Mary Wiseman as Tilly, Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd, Clare McConnell as Dennas, Damon Runyan as Ujilli, Kenneth Mitchell as Kol as well as Clare McConnell and Damon Runyan as Dennas and Ujilli, leaders in the Klingon Empire. Here’s the official synopsis:

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

Star Trek: Discovery premieres tonight, Sunday, September 24 at 8:30 p.m ET/PT on CBS with the following fourteen episodes coming exclusively on the CBS All Access streaming service weekly. The season is set to be released in two halves with the first eight episodes running through November 5, followed by the second half picking up in January 2018. Are you excited?

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See

Previous1 of 11

Netflix The Defenders The Avengers Marvel Cinematic UniverseAfter three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.

Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.

Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.

Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.

So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!
