    I look forward to the official version with the 57 executive producer credits all over it

    Well I've watched this intro more times than I'd care to admit, so they must be doing something right.

    It might have been nice if with each new live action show they'd gone with a different talent to compose the music, switched things up a little bit. Prodigy and Lower Decks were a nice surprise in that regard.

    Russo only composed the main theme, the Prodigy composer is doing the music for the rest of the show.

    No they didn't. No PS2 game looked that good, no PS5 game looks that good.

    *Does a google* Oh Yeah! Ha, well in that case I'm much more excited to see where the SNW soundtrack goes:)

    PS2? Yeah, no dude. PS2 looked janky as heck sometimes, with a lot of artifacts.

    Rewatched it on a big screen and I like it more. A much better update of the TOS theme than we got at the end of Star Trek Beyond.

    I'm clearly in a minority here, but I didn't rate the visuals.

    Honestly, that doesn't look like a real ship to me. It's been an up-and-down with making vessels that feel real ever since they left actual modelwork, and this feels a down to me.

    The over-use of colours, textures, the way everything has to zip past at speed - it feels as close to looking at a real ship as JJ Abrams' lens flares felt to looking at a real scene. I honestly could've bought it as the opening visuals to Prodigy (complete with that other uncanny space city thing with the domed forest) but I don't look it and feel I saw a real ship; I look it and feel it looks like someone's had an absolute blast of a time making truly gorgeous artwork on an Apple Mac. But artwork nonetheless.

    It seems to have plenty of fans though, so, y'know, IDIC and all that!

    The theme was generic but I liked the tempo and definitely Pike's intro (glad we stuck with a "five-year mission").

    There's still plenty of great theme music to be had out there. Sure, the trend of TV scoring has switched from sweeping mood melodies to a heavy focus on motif. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. And the Mando theme will forever rank among the best series theme songs of all time, regardless of how popular the show is.

    It isn't that there's a lack of young talent (quite the opposite), but that the talent is spread across so many different forms of media now. Keep in mind, Giacchino himself started in video games, as a lot of the hot new up-and-comers are doing. Heck, there are even some YT channels that have great classic style theme songs.

    Don't let the fact that Star Trek continues to employ an unimaginative hack whose greatest musical achievement is marring Nina Gordon deter you.

    It indeed looks like a cartoon.
    I don't mind that much - I like the MARVEL movies, and the CGI in them also looks like animated cartoons. If this show is trying to ape the MARVEL formula... that's imo waaaay better than whatever the fuck they are trying to do with DISCOPICARD.

    IMO It looks nothing like any cartoon.

    Wow rude much? His music is fine.

    Either way, he's not doing the series music. That's being handled by the composer of Prodigy, Nami Melumad. Russo only did the main theme.

    The CGI is mediocre. A lot of the shots look like a video game cut sequence.

    It's not a bad intro, but with all the money they're spending, you'd think they'd be able to have some photo-real CG.

    The TNG intro from over 30 years ago looks more realistic.

    All of the money must be going to the 50 odd executive producers as older Trek felt more expensive than these shows.
