Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Opening Titles Released

The opening titles for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds have been released. The highly anticipated new series is the latest under Alex Kurtzman's rebranding of the Star Trek franchise for a new generation. Announced in 2020, Strange New Worlds will focus on the famed starship USS Enterprise and its crew prior to Kirk's arrival as captain. The new series is aimed to be less serious in tone than Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard, and will be more similar in style to the Original Series.

Anson Mount stars as Christopher Pike in Strange New Worlds, the captain of the USS Enterprise. His character is derived from the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Original Series before being replaced by William Shatner's Captain James T. Kirk. Mount will be joined by Rebecca Romijn as Number One, Ethan Peck as Spock, Babs Olusanmokun as Doctor M'Benga, and Celia Rose Gooding as Nyota Uhura. These new versions of Pike, Spock, and Number One previously appeared in Star Trek: Discovery season 2.

Paramount+ has recently released the opening titles for their new Star Trek spin-off series, Strange New Worlds. Similar to past Star Trek opening sequences, the main starship of the series is the focus of the titles; in this case, it's the USS Enterprise. Check out the full sequence below.

The titles begin with introductory images of the USS Enterprise as Mount recites the famous words from the "Where no man has gone before" speech that preceded nearly every episode of The Original Series. Brief shots of the USS Enterprise as it travels throughout the galaxy, passing black holes, stars, and space debris, are paired with the new series' orchestral theme by composer Jeff Russo, a theme that calls back to Alexander Courage's theme for The Original Series. The final notes of music from this sequence also appear to be pulled directly from that initial theme.

The title sequence is a clear indication that the new series will try to evoke the original Star Trek series that spawned a massive multimedia franchise. Where Discovery and Picard were criticized for straying from the Star Trek formula that audiences were so accustomed to, the upcoming series seeks to recapture the magic that revolutionized science-fiction television. With Star Trek: Picard season 2 set to conclude on May 5, Paramount has chosen to waste no time between shows and will premiere Strange New Worlds the same day on its streaming service.
