CBS released the intro on Twitter, giving fans the chance to see the new version before the second season premieres later this week. There are a handful of differences in the sequence, with the Twitter account encouraging fans to try and spot all the changes between the two. These include the introduction of the distinctive captain's chair in lieu of a helmet, a silhouetted figure with angelic wings and an appearance by the sigil for the Vulcans.

Star Trek: Discovery abandoned the traditional Star Trek television intro of showcasing the ship rocketing through space. Instead, the first season of the series adopted a more minimalist approach to title sequence, showcasing some of the most recognizable aspects of the franchise in various levels of design.
Returning on Thursday, January 17 on CBS All Access, Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, Mary Chieffo, Anson Mount, Ethan Peck and Michelle Yeoh.
