  • Why, Gene?

    Understandably, Roddenberry wanted to keep Star Trek alive in some form, but his choice of an animated, Saturday morning cartoon was just bad. Granted, some of the story lines were intriguing, and the animation allowed for a few things the limited special effects and budget of the original series could never produce. The actors\' performances are dry and lifeless, the animation itself is very poor with lots of still shots and conversations are just photos with moving lips, and the same shot may even be seen in many different episodes. I remember this from when I was a kid, but I don\'t remember it being this bad.
