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.Read more ›
Produced by Filmation founders Norm Prescott and Lou Scheimer, 1973's "Star Trek" captivated Saturday morning viewers every bit as much as the live action series did for primetime viewers. Original series writers D.C. Fontana and David Gerrold wrote several of the episodes while cast member Walter Koenig (Ensign Chekov) wrote the episode "The Infinite Vulcan." Koenig was the only principal cast member to not reprise his role for the animated series.

I had a similar experience, but I only went through 2 of them before I found one that was undamaged. The same flaw exists with the TOS Remastered sets. As such, it is a good idea not to purchase this, or any of the TOS Remastered seasons online. There seem to be a very high number of damaged... Read More

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.
