Sometimes called as TOS-A, Star Trek The Animated series debuted on NBC, Sat. Sept. 8, 1973 and ran for two seasons. It featured the original series cast returning to reprise their roles, as well as many of the original series writers, and guest stars. In addition, it was executive produced by Gene Roddenberry, and produced by D.C. Fontana, who has been with Star Trek from it's very beginnings. Being animated, the series could boldly go where the original series could not. It was able to show more exotic aliens, spaceships, and planetscapes then possible in live action. It broke new ground, won an Emmy, and left a lasting impression on the Star Trek universe. It also kept Star Trek alive in it's lean years, between the original series and the movies, I'm rating it a solid **** out of 5 stars for the care and effort that went into this sometime wrongly overlooked & forgotten entry in the Star Trek series.
