What if nuTrek has the same curse as the old Star Trek moves, but it affects the even movies, not the odds.
Back in the day, they used to have an Emmy for best TV intro -- combo of music and visuals. Now they don't bother.
"Miami Vice", now that was a TV opening. TV theme songs used to be best-selling singles, you'd hear them on all kinds of radio stations. Now you're lucky if they take some hit song and use it on a TV show.
I think Game of Thrones is the only cool/epic one nowadays but I still don't hear it playing when I'm out shopping. I think maybe X-Files was the last one I remember hearing publicly?

Tiago hadn't realized he had fallen asleep until he awoke. He was still on the bridge.
Brushing the hair out of his eyes, he started calling up the stations from where he sat – not yet clear-headed enough to walk over to each one. The computer showed him a blue-white planet. It was an estimate, not a live feed, because the planet was on the far edge of normal sensor range. Below the image was a series of readings which confirmed radio activity. Intelligence pattern – confirmed.
He rubbed his eyes and pulled himself unsteadily to his feet. With a force of will, Tiago walked away from the console. He shook his head to clear it. There might be people. He wanted to just sit there and stare at the data – at the possibilities manifest in the data – but that wasn't productive. What he needed to do now was figure how how he felt about the data.
It was one thing to hope for contact; it was another to risk it. They could be monsters. They could be brutal savages. Worse, they could be the sort of highly evolved savages he was fleeing. He needed to think about this.
