Discovery title sequence is full of blueprinty goodness

Ahead of the very near launch of Discovery, CBS have released the opening title sequence, which is gloriously different from all the Trek's before, and packed full of delicious graphical goodness (I like them!). Check them out (unofficially if you're region locked out):

Just, look at all this lovely stuff:

And the still version... Did you notice the phaser and communicator are in fact the TOS designs (with the phaser being transformed to the Discovery design as it springs apart)?

In other news, CBS carried out an odd little promo stunt last night, flying an lit up model of the Discovery over New York - It sort of works...

And today posted an briefing article for the series, including a good top view of the Klingon sarcophagus ship:

Star Trek: Discovery is due to start any moment now, and it will be distributed almost everywhere in the world on Netflix, except for the US where is will be available on CBS All Access, and Canada where it will be on Bell Media channels and services.

Well... it's a nice sequence, but TBH, like many aspects of DSC, they're going in the complete opposite direction of where I think they should be going. I want to see the Discovery flying through big BIG space... exploring the unknown... being small against some majestic stellar backgrop. Because, to me, that's what Star Trek is all about. Star Trek is not about "hey, look, does this prop look familiar?" to me. IF they want to use TOS props, that's fine... but use them in the show. Use something else for the title sequence. Something *special.*

Is that me....or does main theme not very easy to remenber.
And in contrast with STTNG, DS9 or VOYAGER, it's not very epic, powerful, just kind of nice harmonics.
