Product Description

Boldly continuing where Star Trek: The Original Series left off, these animated adventures chart the progress of Captain Kirk and his crew in a universe unconstrained by "real-life" cinematography! With all characters voiced by their original actors, join Kirk, Spock, Bones and the crew for 22 new adventures: to boldly go where no animation has gone before!

Amazon.com

Star Trek: The Animated Series is often referred to as Star Trek's "fourth season" because it was created in 1973, four years after the third and final season of the original series, and because most of the original cast provided the voices. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and Majel Barrett reprised their characters, and some contributed other voices as well. The only major omission was Walter Koenig's Chekov, who was replaced at the navigation console by Lieutenant Arex, the three-armed alien who most prominently represented the series' freedom to create non-humanoid characters. (Koenig did write an episode.) And while the animation is crude at best, the stories are solid sci-fi (penned by some of Star Trek's veteran writers including DC Fontana and David Gerrold, all of whom received prominent opening credits), explored the Star Trek mythos, and elevated the series above typical Saturday-morning fare. For example, "Yesteryear" goes back to Spock's early years on Vulcan, continuing some explorations from the original series' "Journey to Babel," and offers the familiar voice of Mark Lenard as Sarek. "One of Our Planets Is Missing" raises some interesting philosophical questions about the value of life, and "More Tribbles, More Troubles" and "Mudd's Passion" revisit favorite characters. Star Trek: The Animated Series lasted just barely over one season, but it won the franchise's only Emmy (for Outstanding Entertainment Children's Series in 1975) and some of its ideas were embraced by future series. Trekkers who know it only by reputation will find it a valuable part of the Star Trek canon. In addition to the series' 22 half-hour episodes, the DVD set includes "Drawn to the Final Frontier: The Making of Star Trek: The Animated Series," a 24-minute featurette including interviews with the producers and writers (but not actors) on how the series was created and why it still holds up; "What's the Star Trek Connection?", a glossary of characters and themes common to the animated series and other series; a storyboard gallery; and a brief text history. Writer David Gerrold and producer David Wise contribute audio commentaries on three and one episode, respectively, and the ever-reliable Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda provide text commentary on three other episodes. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars These are the Animated voyages... August 14, 2006
Format:DVD
After NBC cancelled the original Star Trek series in 1969 for its second time, it seemed doubtful that the voyages of the Starship Enterprise would resume again until Filmation resurrected the original cast (with the notable exception of Walter Koenig) on September 8, 1973 for the Animated Series. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelly, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Majel Barrett lent their vocal talents to bring their familiar characters back to the small screen in addition to a few new bridge officers: Lt. Arex, a three-armed and legged alien of the Edo species voiced by James Doohan, and Lt. M'Ress a Caitian cat-woman with Majel Barrett purring her alluring voice. With most of the original crew onboard, the five-year mission would boldly go on for at least 22 more episodes of continuing missions. While it is generally regarded as non-canon among Trekkies (even Gene Rodenberry himself rejected the notion that TAS was canon and even the Stardates are inconsistent with those established in the original series) the animated series still contributed some reverent facts to the legacy of the enduring franchise including the revelation of Captain James T. Kirk's middle name as 'Tiberius' and the establishment of the first holodeck (known as the 'Rec Room') in the episode "The Practical Joker" which would serve as an important narrative device for The Next Generation. Walter Koenig would still contribute to the series as a writer for the episode "The Infinite Vulcan" and alumnus D.C. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The Animated series finally on DVD August 13, 2006
Format:DVD
The animated series of Star Treak is the least known of all and can be easily enjoyed by both children and adults. We see many more non humanoid creatures in this series because if is cheaper to do with animation than with puppets. The series ran for 22 episodes.

Beyond the Farthest Star

The Enterprise is pulled off course and contacted by a noncopereal life form

Yesteryear

Kirk and Spock use the guardian of forever to go back in time but upon returning, nobody recognizes Spock and it is discovered that he died as a child.

One of Our Planets is Missing

The Enterprise crew try to stop a massive cloud like creature from destroying inhabited planets.

The Lorelei Signal

The crew enters a region of space where many ships have vanished from. Later, group of alien women hypnotize all the men of board

and are believe to be the ones responsible for the disappearances

More Tribbles More Troubles

Cyrano Jones introduces a new kind of tribble that does not breed quickly but does get really fat instead.

The Survivor

The Enterprise encounters a damaged pod with a woman on board who is the long lost fiance of one of the crewmen

The Infinite Vulcan

While on an alien planet, a plant like species clones Spock and intends th use the clone as a peacemaker

The Magicks of Megas-Tu

4.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten piece of Trek history finally gets its due November 25, 2006
Format:DVD
It's been a long time coming, but now Star Trek fans can FINALLY complete their collection of 23rd century adventures of the starship Enterprise. I'm pleased that Paramount didn't take the quick & easy route with this series. There were rumors that this would just be a "bare bones" set, with just the episodes and no extras. But Paramount did the right thing, and has given us a collection that will sit proudly beside the original series DVD collections (even the packaging mirrors those earlier releases).

Of the bonus features, "Drawing the Final Frontier" is really the only one of note. It's a 24-minute documentary on the making of the animated series. One minor complaint: The creators spend way too much time trying to justify the show as "real" Star Trek. This is an age-old, and (in my opinion) ridiculous argument among Trek fans. Gene Roddenberry was involved with the series. It featured almost all the regular cast. It was written by original series veterans, as well as other noteworthy science fiction writers. How could it NOT be considered "real" Trek?

There's a well-intentioned, but brief and poorly designed feature on continuity withing the Trek universe. Trust me, you'll watch it once and probably never again. The same goes for the text-only segment on the show's history. Still, I appreciate that time was taken to create ANY supplemental material for this set.

As for the show itself. . .it's a hard lesson of growing up: Nostalgia ain't what it used to be. BUT, looking at the show from an adult standpoint, it's easy to appreciate the quality writing (most of the time) and the fact that care was taken to be true to the original series. The voice work is all fine, with the versatile James Doohan providing several additional character voices.

Hmm... I sense that Paramount had a design flaw. I'd just consider going with a normal box tin with all the splash logos all over, it would've made a whole world of difference.

Great price elsewhere
I'm looking at it on Walmart online right now, & it says $29.86 + tax. Too bad it went up. If Walmart still had it for $14.96 + tax, I'd go down there tonight and pick up a copy right now.
