The opening credits are incredible. Images of old maps, a sketch of "H.M.S. Enterprize" from Admiral Nelson's time, the Spirit of St. Louis, the Enterprise space shuttle (named for the one in TOS), Amelia Earhart, Chuck Yeager, NASA astronauts, shuttle and rocket launches, the first footprint on the moon, Mars, a space station, a streamlined shuttle of the future, and the shot from First Contact where The Phoenix deploys its nacelles. Finally, a shot of the new/old Enterprise as it jumps into warp. Warp 4.5, that is.
The less said about the theme song, the better. I'll just let everyone fight it out on the forums. But for the record, I hated it and will continue to hate it until they change it. It's sappy beyond belief and completely fails to complement the feelings of pride and wonder the images of space progress bring out. That song by "The Calling Band" they used in the preview shorts was much more evocative of the show than this thing they're using. While it may have been sufficient before the events of September 11, personally, I now need something more stirring than a limp pancake of an anthem. Bring out the brass. Bring out the percussion. Bring out the Sousa.
