Star Trek: Discovery's Season 3 Opening Credits Debuts New Starfleet Insignia

The far-future setting for Star Trek: Discovery is explored in a new opening credits sequence, released ahead of the Season 3 premiere by CBS. Among the more intriguing details in the new sequence, from modified phasers to an advanced fleet of robots, is a redesigned Starfleet insignia.

Instead of the isolated, triangular shape that had a mainstay with the franchise, the Star Trek symbol now has a black background, separated base and line through the right side of the insignia. Pips on the right side indicate officer rank as displayed on the collars of officers in The Next Generation era.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 ended on a massive cliffhanger, with the eponymous Starfleet vessel catapulted over 900 years into the future at the end of the climactic battle against Section 31.

The global health crisis had slowed post-production on Season 3 this past March, with its season premiere pushed to October. The season will take the franchise further into the future than any of its counterparts, to explore a strange, new galaxy 930 years after the events of the Season 2 finale.

Streaming on CBS All Access, Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green as Commander Michael Burnham, Doug Jones as Commander Saru, Anthony Rapp as Lt. Commander Paul Stamets, Mary Wiseman as Ensign Sylvia Tilly, Shazad Latif as Ash Tyler, Wilson Cruz as Dr. Hugh Culber, Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Mary Chieffo as L'Rell, Tig Notaro as Chief Engineer Reno, Ethan Peck as Spock, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Michelle Yeoh as Philippa Georgiou. Seasons 1 and 2 are available now, with Season 3 premiering on Oct. 15.
