Discovery will bringing audiences back to the 23rd century, about ten years before the events of Star Trek: The Original Series, to follow the exploits of Star Fleet officers as they explore the majesty and dangers of the Milky Way. Abrams films, just about every entry in the Star Trek franchise has had incredible musical scores to go along with it. There's so many great ones-if we're counting anime, I'm partial to the likes of Lupin III's theme, or Gundam Wing, but for TV at large there's everything fromStar Trek: Voyager's brazen brass section or the timeless, cosmic weirdness of Doctor Who's ever-fluctuating tiles.

After some background information from Discovery composer Jeff Russo, we hear a familiar introduction, reminiscent of the Alexander Courage's theme from The Original Series, which then transitions into an all-new theme for the series.

Russo said he wanted to make the song feel personal to this particular show, while still feeling like Star Trek. It also can't hurt that one of the sound engineers is wearing Vulcan ears and a Starfleet uniform. And one aspect of "Star Trek" that has always contributed to its staying power is its music.

"Star Trek: Discovery" premieres Sunday, September 24th on CBS All Access. However, the new theme is updated for 2017. Be sure to let us know down below in the comments.

Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman's Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller's Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment.
