The Star Trek: Discovery main title theme is something old and something new.

One of the most iconic parts of Star Trek (except for Enterprise) has always been it’s orchestrated main theme. The new series Star Trek: Discovery looks to continue on that tradition.

Composed by Jefferson Russo, Discovery‘s theme takes its inspiration from the Alexander Courage theme from The Original Series while also having a life of it’s own. Check out a video below and give it a listen.

Premise: Set roughly ten years before the events of the original Star Trek, the series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they discover new worlds and civilizations while exploring the franchise’s signature contemporary themes. The season-long storyline revolves around “an incident and an event in Star Trek history that’s been talked about but never been explored.

Star Trek: Discovery was created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman. Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts serve as showrunners for the show and Akiva Goldsman is a supporting producer.

The series has a pretty all-star cast that includes Michelle Yeoh, Sonequah Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Doug Jones, James Frain, and Anthony Rapp. Rainn Wilson will also be appearing in the series as Harry Mudd.

Star Trek: Discovery is set to premiere this fall on CBS All Access with a 15 episode run.
