And you'll notice all sorts of audio callbacks to older Star Trek series, including the echoing sound of the ship's instruments, the whistling hailing noise and the same red alert effect as numerous older programmes.

The new series Star Trek: Discovery premieres TONIGHT (September 24) on CBS and the main title sequence debuted online ahead of the airing!

As a whole, the first episode generated in linear ratings a 1.6 in the 18-49 demographic, and that's not counting anyone who watched it on CBS All Access, which is going to be the show's home for the remainder of the season. Eastern Daylight Time, depending on how long CBS' afternoon National Football League coverage runs into prime time. There is genuine excitement and suspense in the epic confrontation in Episode 2 between a fleet of Starfleet ships and a horde of Klingon craft.

"After Trek", a live companion after-show, will begin streaming at 8 p.m. Giant battle cruisers, busy viewscreens, hordes of starships, spacesuit helmets so crowded with data displays that we can barely see an actor's face - yes, it's nifty tech, but more often than not it's just in the way. The second chapter of seven episodes will begin streaming in January.

At least two characters from the original Star Trek will appear: Sarak, played by James Frain, and conman Harry Mudd, played by Rainn Wilson.

With that said, all the other shows Netflix releases globally, including Riverdale and The Good Place, eventually end up on Netflix. Chairman and CEO Les Moonves, who agreed to a delay, which allowed for construction of "sets that felt immersive and real" and design of elaborate costumes, Kurtzman said. "There's never been a Star Trek that's operated in a post-Sopranos world", longtime Trek producer and Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ron Moore told EW in a recent Discovery cover story.

Star Trek: Discovery premieres this Sunday on CBS.

The series comes from creators Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman, and centers on the Vulcan-raised human Commander Michael Burnam (Sonequa Martin-Green) who finds herself on the U.S.S. Discovery for reasons now unknown. The talk show, hosted by Matt Mira, originally of the Nerdist, includes guest appearances from "Star Trek's" stars and features discussions of the episode and recaps.

Set in 2256, roughly a decade before the original "Star Trek" embarked on its five-year mission a half-century ago, the program breaks ground by building its plot both around an African-American woman, Michael Burnham ("The Walking Dead's" Sonequa Martin-Green), and a first officer, as opposed to a starship captain.
