Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ Nostalgic Opening Titles Were A Total Accident
The opening theme of "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds" was composed by Jeff Russo, and the Courage intro, originally spoken by Captain Kirk (William Shatner), was distantly quoted.
Russo's music plays over a title sequence that many Trek shows have employed — glory shots of a Federation vessel soaring through the stars or encountering weird phenomena.
Showrunner Henry Alonso Myers admitted to Syfy that the classic narration was not an original part of the plan for the "Strange New Worlds" title sequence.
The pilot's director, Akiva Goldsman, inserted it as a placeholder, but the producers loved it as it directly linked the new series to the classic 1960s "Trek,” and they kept it.
