I know right, my living room looks more advanced than the TOS set.
The producer has stated that and the change in the Klingon's will all be explain in future episodes. Time travel will be involved. Saved by good old time travel.
So that is where Kirk learned the backwards around the sun time travel trick.
Preview of the theme music.
Thanks--I certainly hope that the theme is more drawn out in the show's main title, as the new stuff in the segment was not terribly impressive.
Yeah, basically all the good stuff was in the first 2 notes, and the last 8 (or so). Both "borrowed" from TOS.
I didn't think that was the good stuff at all: Those notes were derivative, almost pandering in intent.
I thought the main theme was as good as any main theme of any major motion picture in the genre these days. It isn't iconic, but no motion picture main theme was iconic the first time it was played. In terms of other Trek main themes I'd put this on par with the DS9 theme, better than TOS and TNG. I don't include the Enterprise theme: It is better music, but worse as a Trek theme.
the notes i mention were the only thing in the theme that stirred any kind of feeling in me, because they evoke Star Trek at least. The rest of the theme didn't evoke excitement, triumph, disaster, suspense or any other kind of feeling. Maybe if I really like the show, it'll grow on me, but at first and second listen it hardly does a thing for me.
And disagree about themes not being instantly iconic, the best are. Jaws, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Gilligan's Island, Hill Street Blues, Mission Impossible, just to name a few. Overall admittedly it's a low percentage.
I'm not going to rank the Star Trek themes, I can't even remember the Voyager or DS9 themes. But I'm one of the few who actually liked the Enterprise theme.
I gotta say, I grow more and more pessimistic about this show, every time I see or read something new about it.
I'm working to avoid forming opinions about the show until it airs and I have an opportunity to view it. So far, my concerns are relates solely to how it is being distributed, something for which we have comprehensive and definitive details about.
Good for you.
As I said, I'm hoping that the video posted above is more a teaser and does not accurately reflect the full Star Trek Discovery opening theme. Am looing forward to it and giving it its full premiere.
Btw, I, too, am a great fan of the Enterprise theme (especially the original, preferred over the remix in the later seasons)--and, in fact, the opening as a whole. I find it the most meaningful, visually and aurally, of all the themes and it gets to me every time. I never understood issues with it. (Having said that, the original theme is incredibly daring, and so fitting for the then new and daring show.)
I never really hated "Where My Heart Will Take Me," but Archer's Theme is so much better.
I've enjoyed that as well, and it's had me sitting through the show's credits many times rather than FF'ing through. I still enjoy the words of the opening theme, however, especially when paired with the evolutionary story told by the opening theme shots--a perfect intro. to what Enterprise is about. Award-winning.
(And thanks for posting Archer's Theme!)
this can't be good
This whole streaming-only situation just gave me a jarring memory of what happened with Star Trek: Voyager was first broadcast. Back then, I was a big Trek fan. It was the pre-Internet days, so I would go to the bookstore to read up on all things Trek.
Star Trek: Voyager was going to be broadcast on the new channel UPN. To my disappointment, my city could not get an affiliate for UPN in time for the premiere. I was so desperate to see it. I was even talking to my parents to see if we can take a trip to a nearby metro area (about 1 hour away), just to watch it in a motel.
In the end, I didn't get to watch it live. I had a cousin from another city to tape it for me, and saw it a few weeks later. UPN then clater ame on in my city.
Now, the situation is almost the same with Discovery. But this time, even though there are many ways for me to see it, I probably won't bother until the whole season review is up.
Not to trigger flashbacks but Paramount Network is coming back as well.
Viacom Unveils the Paramount Network, Rebranding Spike TV
I wouldn't read too much into the review blackout. It doesn't necessarily mean they're afraid of bad reviews, or they're trying to control spin. It probably has more to do with the worldwide nature of the premiere and the international Netflix audience.
Besides, Game of Thrones does it every season.
Lots of people watch The Walking Dead a full season behind on Netflix. I watched the first three seasons of GoT a season behind on BluRay. I'm sure a lot of Trek fans will wait until DSC releases on Disc/Digital.
DSC is airing 15 episodes in two halves, the first half ends in November- and resumes in January, and the first ep airs on broadcast. Sign up on October 1st, get out after Thanksgiving. You're out $12. You can decide if it's worth coming back in January.
I wonder what they will show on that since CBS has the rights to Star Trek, not the company currently called Viacom (which owns Spike).
They can show reruns of The Orville.
Here's a list from June. They plan to have 6 original scripted series, including Heathers (based on the movie)
