CBS 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.

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:
