Star Trek: Strange New Worlds might be pushing its namesake franchise into the future, but the show’s opening titles are a blast from the past. Ahead of its debut next week, Paramount+ has released the series’ full opening sequence, which both honors its forebears and sets the stage for epic new adventures. You can check it out for yourself below.
The sequence begins with the USS Enterprise firing up its engines to prepare for another journey through the cosmos. But as it takes off, we hear the familiar “These are the voyages…” narration from the original Star Trek series, this time delivered by Anson Mount’s Christopher Pike. Even the music (composed by Nami Melumad) features a unique twist on the classic Star Trek theme, hinting at plenty of thrills ahead.

Additionally, to help get fans ready for the series, Paramount+ has also released a new inside look at the show hosted by Wil Wheaton. You can watch the 22-minute preview below.
