Star Trek opening titles

Below I posted a video of the opening titles of each series of Star Trek. What I thought was interesting to watch was how the graphics progressed over the years. The original was quite crude by today's standards, but back when the original series was created, it was actually acceptable and the graphics were very similar to other shows. Most effects used to deal with miniaturization as computers weren't powerful enough to create intense three dimensional graphics. As time goes on, you can see how computer graphics began to become a more integral part of the introductions. By the time of even Star Trek Voyager, computer animations and graphics almost entirely made up the entire introduction. I like videos such as these where you can witness the progression of computer animation, and how it became more advanced as years go on.
