Paramount+ debuted the official opening credit for Star Trek: Unusual New Worlds on Twitter this morning, and the sequence leans closely into fan nostalgia. The credit are a visually beautiful tribute to the long-lasting opening credit sequence for Star Trek: The Unique Sequence, displaying the USS Enterprise hovering by area, previous asteroid belts and clouds of interstellar mud because it searches for the titular new worlds. Even the voiceover dialogue stays the identical (besides “no man” is now “nobody”).

As we have beforehand reported, showrunner Akiva Goldsman has confirmed that Unusual New Worlds will return to the episodic construction of traditional Star Trekmaking it a uncommon beast on this period of serialized storytelling and streaming platforms—and can respect current canon. It’ll function Capt. Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), Quantity One (Rebecca Romijn), and Ethan Peck’s Spock, who first appeared in Star Trek: Discovery‘s second season.

Babs Olusanmokun performs Dr. M’Benga; Celia Rose Gooding has the unenviable process of filling Nichelle Nichols’ sneakers as Cadet Nyota Uhura; Jess Bush performs Nurse Christine Chapel; Melissa Navai performs Lt. Erica Ortegas; Bruce Orak performs an Aenar named Hemmer who’s blind in a single eye (Aenar are an albino subspecies of Andorians which might be typically depicted as blind); and Christina Chong performs La’An Noonien-Singh (a relation of the traditional revenge-obsessed Star Trek villain Khan). The streaming platform has already greenlighted a second season, with Paul Wesley (Vampire Diaries) becoming a member of the solid as future Enterprise Capt. James T. Kirk.
