Truly great cartoon series, this was essentially the classic original series in a cartoon setting. By this time, the original thanks to Desilu Productions had enjoyed a comeback on tv. The original series, despite being cancelled by
NBC was now becoming a cult phenomenom.
The cartoon series even featured the original
voices of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy and the whole cast. The episods are top notch and animation is superb. It actually does outshine the original, because lets face facts: The original had mediocred special effect and had a small meager budget compared to the movies.
But the cartoon itself had bigger budget, more stories , and was a mature level for both kids and adults. A couple of great eps are "Eye of the Beholder", "Pirates of Orion" and "Magic Megas Tu". "Yesteryear" was truly an informative
episode as we see Spock's background and
how he grew up with part of his Vulcan
This is a great series that truly needs
to be rewatched again.
